John Maynard Keynes 1883-1946

£14.99

Product description

Revised, abridged and with a new introduction detailing the thirty-year genesis of his work, Robert Skidelsky has tailored his magnificent three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes, acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman's life, into one definitive book. From the early years set out in Hopes Betrayed, through the formative period of The Economist as Saviour, to the crowning achievements of Fighting for Britain, Skidelsky's sensitive and richly detailed work now 'stands on its own, and can be read for the first time as a unity'.
Skidelsky tell the story of how an extraordinary gifted young man came to concern himself with the practical problems of an age overshadowed by war. It is an intellectual and ideological journey that takes Keynes from the early influences of the Cambridge Apostles and the Bloomsbury set to practical experience at the India Office and the Treasury, a journey whose first stage culminates in the Paris Peace Conference and the writing of The Economic Consequences of the Peace. With all of Keynes' formidable intelligence and energy focussed on overcoming the threat of the Great War to the 'possibility of civilization', the stage was set for the formation of a new economic philosophy.
