On civil liberty and self-government by Francis Lieber ( )
37 editions published between 1874 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We belong to the Anglican tribe, which carries Anglican principles and liberty over the globe, because wherever it moves liberal institutions and a common law full of manly rights and instinct with the principle of an expansive life accompany it. We belong to that race whose obvious task it is among other proud and sacred tasks, to rear and spread civil liberty over vast regions in every part of the earth, on continent and isle. We belong to that tribe which alone has the word Self-Government. These are the reasons why it is incumbent upon every American again and again to present to his mind what his own liberty is, how he must guard and maintain it, and why, if he neglect it, he resembles the missionary that should proceed to convert the world without bible or prayer-book. These are the reasons why I feel called upon to write this work in addition to what I have given long ago in another place on the subjects of Justice, Law, the State, Liberty and Eight"--Chapter.

Manual of political ethics designed chiefly for the use of colleges and students at law by Francis Lieber ( )
39 editions published between 1874 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It has been stated in the preface to the Legal and Political Hermeneutics, that this work grew out of an essay, originally intended as a chapter of the Political Ethics. The reasons why the author felt obliged to publish it as a separate work are there likewise given. He must repeat here that the Hermeneutics are to be considered as a complement to the Ethics, and that it was unavoidable frequently to refer in the latter to the former"--Preface.

"The greater part of the work which is now offered to the public, first appeared a few months since, under the form of weekly articles, in the New York Independent. It is now republished with some additions, which are chiefly appendixes, giving the views of others on certain special points. The object of the work will be sufficiently evident on slight examination. From very early times there has been felt, under several forms of civilization and religion, a dissatisfaction with the existing institutions of society, which has given birth to the desire of forming communities within the state and protected by it, yet separated from the rest of the people. Ideals, also, of reformed political societies have been given to the world, which grew out of this same dissatisfaction with the actual order of things. And in the most modern times these Utopias have passed over into plans for a new social system, which aims at gaining the control over all civilized states. We have attempted to sketch the leading features of these smaller communities and Utopias, and of modem socialism, founded on equality and political economy, in the hope of showing the similarities and differences of the schemes, devised for carrying on the work of society without private property. The class of persons for whom we have written, are those who would relish neither extensive details touching the communities of the past, which have left no mark on society, nor a long exposition of the economical principles of modern socialism. Should this system gain such favor as seriously to threaten the present order of things, we earnestly hope that other essays, more elaborate and comprehensive than the present one, will be written for its confutation"--Preface.

Aeschylus Prometheus bound by Aeschylus ( Book )
7 editions published between 1837 and 1869 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prometheus Bound is a play beloved of revolutionaries, romantics and rebels, with a fierce optimism tempered by an acute awareness of the compromises, dangers and obsessions of political action. This companion sets the play in its historical context, explores its challenge to authority, and traces its reception from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. Many scholars have disputed its Aeschylean authorship, but it has proved the most influential of tragedies outside academia. Marx's favourite tragedy, Prometheus Bound is also a foundational text for the genre of science fiction through its i
An historical discourse pronounced before the graduates of Yale college, August 14, 1850; one hundred and fifty years after the founding of that institution. With an appendix by Theodore Dwight Woolsey ( Book )

Gorgias by Plato ( Book )
7 editions published between 1848 and 1869 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though Gorgias was a Sicilian teacher of oratory, the dialogue is more concerned with ethics than with the art of public speaking. The ability, professed particularly by the Sophists, to make the worse cause appear the better, struck Plato as the source of all corruption. The dialogue's chief interest lies, not in Gorgias' courteous outline of his art, but in the clash between Socrates, the true philosopher, and Callicles, a young Athenian of the stamp of Alcibiades, who brashly maintains that might is right
