Principles of Political Economy by John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873).

<i>The Principles of Political Economy</i>, first published in 1848, was one of the most important texts on the subject of economy at that time. It is broken up into five books; Production, Distribution, Exchange, Influence of the Progress of Society on Production and Influence of Government.
This text is an abridged version by J. Laurence Laughlin, used as a text book in colleges in America. (Temporary Summary, if someone would like to write a better summary, please do!)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/30107
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Note! There are indented comments throughout the text that are not by John Stuart Mill, but by the editor, J. Laurence Laughlin. When you come to those comments, they should start with, "Comment," and at the end be closed with, "End of Comment."

Well, I had one reader who had claimed one section of this wildly popular project! If that reader would like to claim that section again, please do so! We had a bit of a problem and we lost a whole month of work on the forum. I'm sure your section will still be there for you! :D

Hi Ann,
I was trying out the first section to read, and was puzzled by the paragraphs that are in a different setting from the main text (and that often are comments on Mill's text). Only then did I scroll up to the beginning of the text. This is actually an abridged version of Mill's treatise - abridged by and with comments by a certain American, namely J. Laurence Laughlin.
So the "indented" paragraphs are not by Mill himself, but by Laughlin. Laughlin died in 1933, so he is still safe to read for me. But it will be good to put his name at least on the catalog page and the summary, but possibly also in the Librivox disclaimer (but that's your decision of course).
How do you want us to make the distinction in the recording between text that was written by Mill and the comments by Laughlin? Do we state something like "Comment" and "End of Comment"? Of "Laughlin's comment" or something?
It will be important to make the distinction, not only just because Mill didn't write those paragraphs, but also because the comments are really written from a US perspective, while Mill wrote from the UK perspective.
Anna

These sections are yours, thank Anna!

Now, for your questions. I didn't even think about this being an abridged version, so I have made a few changes. J. Laurence has been added as an author, and the PD disclaimer has been added to so that J. Laurence is mentioned. And I have added him onto the temporary project page summary and will add him to the first post when I edit it further. As far as the indented comments, I think that we should say, "Comment," and "End of Comment." That would be the cleanest way to differentiate the comments from Mr Mill's text. Thank you for pointing this out, this will make those comments more meaningful, much less confusing. :D
