'James and John Stuart Mill. Father and Son in the Nineteenth Century' - Bruce Mazlish

Hutchinson, London, hardback, 484pp. foxing to the page edges when book held sideways, dustjacket tatty, but otherwise reasonable condition.

"'I was born in London on the 20th May, 1806,' John Stuart Mill begins his autobiography, and was the eldest son of James Mill, the author of 'The History of British India.' From the first page of his book, Bruce Mazlish, noting the extraordinary absence of John Mill's mother from the whole of the autobiography, draws the reader into one of the great father-son stories of the nineteenth century. James Mill, the Utilitarian philosopher who tried to shape his son in his own image in the age's most celebrated educational experiment; the first advocate of birth control who himself fathered nine children. John, who lived through a depression as famous as the education that induced it; the lover of a married woman with whom he and her husband lived for almost twenty years. The two Harriets, the unmentioned wife and John's adored mistress and eventual wife, each of whom played their role in making John into the leading male champion of women's rights in the nineteenth century." (from the dustjacket)
