That noble science of politics : a study in nineteenth-century intellectual history by Stefan Collini( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unusual and important work, three well-known historians of ideas examine the diverse forms taken in nineteenth-century Britain by the aspiration to develop what was then known as a 'science of politics'. This aspiration encompassed a more extensive and ambitious range of concerns than is implied by the modern term 'political science': in fact, as this book demonstrates, it remained the overarching category under which many nineteenth-century thinkers grouped their attempts to achieve systematic understanding of man's common life. As a result of both the over-concentration on closed abstract systems of thought and the intrusion of concerns which pervade much writing in the history of political theory and of the social sciences, these attempts have since been neglected or misrepresented. By deliberately avoiding such approaches, this book restores the subject to its centrality in the intellectual life and political culture of nineteenth-century Britain"--Publisher description

An essay on the principle of population : text, sources and background, criticism by T. R Malthus( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While millions face hunger, malnutrition, and starvation, the world's population is increasing by over 225,000 people per day, 80 million per year. In many countries, supplies of food and water are inadequate to support this many people, so the world falls deeper and deeper into what economists call the "Malthusian trap," named for the writer whose work, more than any other, brought attention to the population dilemma. Thomas Robert Malthus first published An Essay on the Principle of Population in 1798, and it quickly became the focal point of controversies which continue today. Simply put, it stated that human population increased at a geometric rate, while agricultural production could, at best, increase only arithmetically, thus resulting in shortages of food. While this idea was neither entirely new nor wholly indisputable, Malthus' clear and forceful statement sounded an alarm. Today, many nations and individuals are making efforts to curb runaway population growth, but for much of the world, the problem remains unsolved." "This new edition of the classic work contains the text of the original 1798 essay, along with later revisions made by the author. Background and source materials include excerpts from works by such writers as David Hume, Adam Smith, John Stuart Mill, Charles Darwin, and Karl Marx. Contemporary commentary ranges widely through many schools of thought, from Lester R. Brown, Paul and Anne Ehrlich, and Garret Hardin to Julian Simon and Pope Paul VI. The evolution of Malthus' idea and its validity through the years are traced in Philip Appleman's comprehensive introduction."--Jacket

Principles of political economy, with some of their applications to social philosophy by John Stuart Mill( Book )

18 editions published between 1970 and 1988 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume unites, for the first time, Books IV and V of Mill's great treatise on political economy with his fragmentary chapters on socialism. It shows him applying his classical economic theory to policy questions of abiding concern, particularly the desirability of sustained growth of national wealth and population versus a stationary state, the merits of capitalism versus socialism, and the expedient scope of government intervention in the competitive market economy. His answers to these questions have considerable relevance today, and they serve to illustrate the enduring power and imagination of his distinctive liberal utilitarian philosophy." "In his Introduction Jonathan Riley clarifies Mill's approach, considers what constitutes the Millian Utopia, and shows how examination of such an ideal society provides valuable insights into the structure of his philosophy."--Jacket
Vindiciae Gallicae and other writings on the French Revolution by James Mackintosh( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vindiciae Gallicae and Other Writings on the French Revolution presents the first modern and fully annotated edition of James Mackintosh's most famous work, Vindiciae Gallicae, together with related writings on the French Revolution. The writings span the years 1791 to 1815 and trace the transformation of Mackintosh's thinking on the Revolution, beginning with his enthusiastic support of the cause, his later disillusionment with its violence and tyranny, and finally an increasing desire to distance himself from his earlier advocacy."--Jacket
