John Stuart Mill: Victorian Firebrand

Richard Reeves

John Stuart Mill was a vigorous activist who began campaigning for accessible contraceptive methods when he was just seventeen, shocked into action after finding a recently killed newborn baby in a park. He would become, in time, the highest-ranked English thinker of the century, the author of On Liberty, and one of the most passionate reformers and advocates of his opinionated age. John Stuart Mill is a portrait of a man whose life was spent in pursuit of truth and liberty for all.
