Collected here in a single volume for the first time, On Liberty, Utilitarianism, Considerations on Representative Government, and The Subjection of Women show Mill applying his liberal utilitarian philosophy to a range of issues that remain vital today - issues of the nature of ethics, the scope and limits of individual liberty, the merits of and costs of democratic government, and the place of women in society. In his Introduction John Gray describes these essays as applications of Mill's doctrine of the Art of Life, as set out in A System of Logic. Using the resources of recent revisionist scholarship, he shows Mill's work to be far richer and subtler than traditional interpretations allow.

John Grayis the author of a novel, many magazine articles, several stage musicals, a book on tattoos,Lost in North America: The Imaginary Canadian in the American Dream(1994),Local Boy Makes Good(1987), and the internationally acclaimedBilly Bishop Goes to War(1982) with Eric Peterson. He has contributed sixty-five satirical pieces forThe Journalon CBC Television, and is a frequent speaker on cultural issues. Among his many awards are the Governor General’s Award, the Canadian Authors Association Award, and the National Magazine Award. He lives in Vancouver. Eric Neal Peterson, stage, film and television actor is recognized as one of the early pioneers of the collective theatre movement in Canada during the 1970s. In 1976, he began working with John Gray, a playwright/director and fellow alumnus from Tamahnous Theatre, to create his most critically successful work,Billy Bishop Goes to War, a two-man show (Gray appeared as the narrator and pianist) in which he played more than a dozen characters.
