Sexual equality : writings by John Stuart Mill( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 304 libraries worldwide
"All the significant ideas in nineteenth-century English feminism can be found in the prose and thought of John Stuart Mill and in those of the two women central to his life: Harriet Taylor, who married him in 1851, and her daughter, Helen Taylor. Together they produced some of the most powerful and influential writings ever penned to promote women's equality, and it was to this family that the Victorian women's movement in England came to look for leadership, guidance, and money." "In this volume, Ann Robson and John Robson bring together the writings and speeches from these three seminal thinkers on the subject of sexual equality. Some of these pieces have not been available in published form for more than a century. They cover such topics as love, sex, marriage, children, property, domestic relations, divorce, and suffrage." "Sexual Equality is a necessary tool for understanding the development of ideas on women's issues in the Mill household. These ideas influenced thinking on sexual equality far beyond England and far past the Victorian period."--BOOK JACKET

Marriage or celibacy? : the Daily telegraph on a Victorian dilemma by John M Robson( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 245 libraries worldwide
Public attention was first caught by a court report of a failed attempt to entrap a Belgian girl into prostitution. This induced blistering editorial comment and angry letters to the paper deploring ineffectual controls over the "Great Social Evil." The next development was unusual for the Victorian press: readers began to write extensive and richly varied comment on the root of the problem - young people did not have in possession or expectation enough money or the right qualifications for marriage. The Telegraph initiated a new form of popular journalism by filling its correspondence columns for almost a month with readers letters under the heading "Marriage or Celibacy?", which they supplemented with lengthy leading articles
Writings on India by John Stuart Mill( Book )

John Stuart Mill worked for thirty-five years in the Examiner's Office of the East India Company, first as a junior clerk and finally as head of the Office. His activities there are among the least examined aspects of his career.Mill was somewhat reluctant, because of his official position, to comment publicly on the Company's affairs, but occasionally he put forwards views in essays and before parliamentary committees that alert us to important elements in his thought and career. Further, when in the aftermath of the Indian Mutiny a succession of bills was brought forward in parliament to abolish the Companty, Mill was its chief spokesman in a succession of carefully argued pamphlets that reveal even more of his views.This volume offers the first opportunity for a fill assessment of Mill's contribution, including as it does the first reprinting of the essays, parliamentary evidence, and pamphlets, and adding an appendix of an annotated record and location of his despatches
