3.0 out of 5 stars American Spelling!?, 29 Feb 2012
I bought this book because it was cheap and I needed it for my uni course.
The print is legible and there is really nothing wrong with this book, except for the fact that the spelling of Mill's text has been changed to American spelling, for whatever reason. I find that quite annoying, since everytime I want to quote something, I have to change it back to British, or in this case original, spelling.
I understand that the publisher of this book is based in New York, yet I don't see the need to change the original spelling Mill used.
That said, this is probably just a minor point for most potential buyers, although it would've led me to buy another version of 'On Liberty'
