Political Economy (1848) by John Stuart Mill was arguably the most
important economics or political economy textbook of the mid nineteenth
century. It was revised until its seventh edition in 1871, shortly before
Mill's death in 1873, and republished in numerous other editions. Beside
discussing descriptive issues such as which nations tended to benefit more
in a system of trade based on comparative advantage, the work also
discussed normative issues such as ideal systems of political economy,
critiquing proposed systems such as communism and socialism.
