With great energy and clarity, Sir James Fitzjames Stephen (1829-1894), author of "History of the Criminal Law of England," and judge of the High Court from 1879-91, challenges John Stuart Mill's "On Liberty" and "On Utilitarianism," arguing that Mill's view of humanity is sentimental and utopian.
"His writing is strong meat--full of the threat of hellfrire, the virtue of government by the lash and a fervent belief that the state cannot remain neutral but has a duty to espouse a moral code."--Roderick Munday, "Cambridge Law Journal"
