'Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.­' To this 'one very simple principle' the whole of Mill's essay On Liberty is dedicated. While many of his immediate predecessors and contemporaries, from Adam Smith to Godwin and Thoreau, had celebrated liberty, it was Mill who organized the idea into a philosophy, and put it into the form in which it is generally known today. The editor of this essay, Gertrude Himmelfarb records responses to Mill's books and comments on his fear of 'the tyranny of the majority'. Dr Himmelfarb concludes that the same inconsistencies which underlie On Liberty continue to complicate the moral and political stance of liberals today.

It was a time that had been previously ravaged by civil wars and with the reign of Augustus order and peace had begun to be restored. That order had a price though. Many of the freedoms of the old Roman Republic had been lost under the new Imperialistic Rome. This loss of freedom and the debate over the virtues of a Republican Rome versus an Imperialistic Rome was central to Virgil's time and is interwoven throughout the poetic . . .

Harry Bosch tiene la oportunidad de reabrir un caso en el que trabajó en el pasado y que había quedado sin resolución; se traga del asesinato de Marie Gesto, una joven desaparecida años atrás. Bosch tuvo siempre el presentimiento de que nunca encontrarían con vida a Gesto y cuando las circunstancias le forzaron a cerrar el caso, se quedó con la desagradable sensación de haber dejado escapar al culpable por obviar un detalle de la investigación. Por ello recibe, entre escéptico y aliviado, la confesión de un hombre que alega estar detrás del asesinato de la joven. Las circunstancias que envuelven el caso son atípicas dado el interés de un político por llegar a un pacto con el presunto culpable. Arguye que resultaría beneficioso paa ambas partes: el detenido detallaría qué pasócon otros casos irresolutos cuya autoría se atribuye, evitando así la pena de muerte. A Bosch no le gusta la propuesta, pero no puede reprimir su deseo de cerrar un caso que le ha inquietado durante años.
