About the Author:

Stephen Engelmann is associate professor of political science, University of Illinois, Chicago.

Review:

"This excellent collection ought to be in the library of every scholar working on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century law, public policy, and the public sphere. It brings together a superb introduction, carefully established texts, and illuminating essays."—Frances Ferguson, author of Pornography, The Theory: What Utilitarianism Did To Action

(Frances Ferguson 2010-07-23)

“This stimulating reader invites a fresh look at Bentham. Drawing on recent scholarship, it presents newly edited texts and unexpected perspectives on familiar works about sex, law, publicity, colonies, place and time, and much else besides.”—William Twining, University College London

 

(William Twining 2010-08-27)
