Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham: Securities Against Misrule and Other Constitutional Writings for Tripoli and Greece by Jeremy Bentham

Book Description

The writings collected in this volume make an important addition to The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham. They lend credence to Bentham's claim that his ideas were appropriate 'for the use of all nations and all governments professing liberal opinions'. The essays, dating mainly from late 1822 and early 1823, are based exclusively on manuscripts, many of which have not been previously published. Turning his attention towards the Mediterranean basin, Bentham here attempts to legislate for one Islamic state, and offers advice to another in the process of throwing off Islamic rule. The Writings for Tripoli include the famous 'Securities against Misrule', in which Bentham draws up a constitutional charter with an accompanying explanation of its provisions. He also discusses the social, political, and religious institutions of the country, and proposes a scheme for the introduction of constitutional reform both there and in the other Barbary states. The Writings for Greece include a rare commentary on the first Greek constitution of 1822, and advice and warnings to the Greek legislators against the temptation of 'sinister appetites'. The main theme in both groups of writings is the efficacy of representative institutions and the publicity of official actions in preventing the abuse of government power.

Books By Author Jeremy Bentham

Preparatory Principles by Jeremy Bentham Preparatory Principles, Hardback (November 2016)

The material in this volume constitutes a philosophical commonplace book, compiled by Bentham in the mid-1770s, in which he worked out the foundational ideas for his new science of legislation. This provides a remarkable record of the evolving ideas of a major legal philosopher at a formative stage of his career.

Writings on Political Economy by Jeremy Bentham Writings on Political Economy, Hardback (June 2016)

A new volume of the writings of Jeremy Bentham, including notes on his discussions of political economy and public finance, his reaction to the taxation of legal proceedings, and the denial of justice to the poor.

Book of Fallacies by Jeremy Bentham Book of Fallacies, Hardback (March 2015)

Jeremy Bentham identifies and criticizes around fifty fallacious arguments used by politicians to thwart measures of reform, and exposes the sinister interests that lead to their employment. This edition restores Bentham's original structure and previously-omitted sections, and remains as relevant to political debate today as it was in his time.

Defence of Usury by Jeremy Bentham Defence of Usury, Paperback (June 2013)

Originally published in 1787, this collection of letters argues against government control of the rate of interest.
