On compromise deals with the art and necessity of compromise. While conducting a reasoned enquiry into the limits of compromise, it also traces the dividing line between lawful and unlawful compromise.

What gives this book currency is its treatment of several issues which are as relevant today as they were when it was first published notably, the necessity of having an honest, independent and wholesome opinion, the need to abandon habits of hypocritical conformity, and the repercussions of acts of coercion.
