Reviews

'This is a much appreciated and welcome work because of the centrality of millian position in the liberalism/nationalism dispute...an interseting and promising position, which can have an important role in the contemporary dicussion of international ethics.' - Raffaele Marchetti

'No-one has combed through Mill's collected works with anything like this degree of thoroughness or acuity.' - Peter Mandler, Cambridge University

'Varouxakis works to set the record straight on this major liberal figure's contribution to understanding the phenomenon of nationalism. His perspicacious use of a wide array of Mill's work is one of the great strengths of this book that promises to be a valuable resource for researchers...Varouxakis succeeds admirably in enriching our understanding of Mill's complex views on this cluster of questions.' - The Review of Politics, Vol. 65, No. 2 (Spring 2003), pp. 290-292

'Georgios Varouxakis is a leader in the new generation of Mill scholars, and his work is exciting and provocative...Mill on Nationality marks an important statement of Varouxakis's extensive research on Mill...The book delivers.' - Bart Schultz, University of Chicago, Journal of the History of Philosophy

'In Mill on Nationality, Varouxakis' main quality is the ability to frame, and thus explain, Mill's position within the big picture of his time. This is a much appreciated and welcome work because of the centrality of [the] millian position in the liberalism/nationalism disputeThis twofold understanding of the utilitarian principle, able to combine a patriotisme eclaire with a cosmopolitan appeal, is definitely an interesting and promising position, which can have an important role in the contemporary discussion of international ethics.' - Raffaele Marchetti (LSE), Millennium: Review of International Studies

'...maybe the most interesting part of Varouxakis' book is precisely his general effort to help prevent the abuse of classical texts in contemporary debates.' - Victor Rizescu, Central European University, Budapest and University of Central European Bucharest, European Review of History
