In this 1861 book, considered his most ambitious political treatise, Mill collects his thinking on:
• the extent to which forms of government are a matter of choice
• the criterion of a good form of government
• the social conditions under which representative government is inapplicable
• the proper functions of representative bodies
• the "extension of suffrage"
• modes of voting
• and much more.
