The correspondence of Jeremy Bentham by Jeremy Bentham( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeremy Bentham was a British philosopher, jurist, and social reformer. He is regarded as the founder of modern utilitarianism. Bentham became a leading theorist in Anglo-American philosophy of law, and a political radical whose ideas influenced the development of welfarism. He advocated individual and economic freedom, the separation of church and state, freedom of expression, equal rights for women, the right to divorce, and the decriminalising of homosexual acts. He called for the abolition of slavery, the abolition of the death penalty, and the abolition of physical punishment, including that of children. He has also become known in recent years as an early advocate of animal rights. Though strongly in favour of the extension of individual legal rights, he opposed the idea of natural law and natural rights, calling them "nonsense upon stilts."

British 'non-elite' MPs, 1715-1820 by Ian R Christie( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the eighteenth century the considerable degree of social mobility in British society, especially between the upper and middling ranks, was arguably one of the most important factors contributing to political and social stability. The extent of that mobility among the members of the nation's legislature was particularly important in this regard. The primary purpose of this book is to identify and quantify that element in the eighteenth-century House of Commons which did not belong by family background and parent's style of life to the traditional elite conventionally regarded as predominant in the House; and to examine what distinctive contribution that section of the House's membership made to the handling of the nation's affairs. The study draws extensively on, but also effectively supplements, the findings of the official History of Parliament."--BOOK JACKET
