Scope and content

The Economics of John Stuart Mill. Vol.I & II (1985) was Hollander’s third in the series of studies on classical economists and it is evident in the reviews of the book that the criticisms garnered by Ricardo spilled over into many reviewers assessment of this voluminous work. The introduction to economist A.W. Coates’ (Duke University) review places Mill within the context of Hollander’s other works:

The reviewer of these volumes faces a daunting task, not simply because of their immense size but also because they cannot adequately be considered in isolation. Together with Professor Hollander’s earlier studies of The Economics of Adam Smith (1973, pp. 351) and The Economics of David Ricardo (1979, pp.759) they constitute a sustained campaign to establish the validity of singular unified interpretation of the central tradition of nineteenth-century British economic thought. Moreover, if Hollander’s main thesis is correct, it has direct implications for our understanding of orthodox (or mainstream) twentieth century economic thought.

He concludes:

Like the massively ambitious project of which it forms an integral part, Hollander’s Mill will leave a permanent imprint in the history of economics. (The Manchester School, September 1987 #3, pp.310-316)

Included is a highly annotated and corrected early draft of the work, parts of a middle draft and a complete final draft.
