Book Description

Bentham scholarship has concentrated on certain aspects of his thought: this collection reflects that bias. Most of the articles are published since 1950, but those of his contemporaries show how his ideas became politically influential. This is an important new contribtion that will be of great use to scholars with an interest in this key thinker.
