The Life and Times of J. Neville Keynes: A Beacon in the Tempest
'An enviable addition to economist biography by a formidable historian now well in her middle eighties. Definitely order this for your library and . . . treat yourself to a copy of this delightful insight into a half century of a Cambridge University life during the late Victorian and Edwardian eras.' - Peter Groenewegen, History of Economics Review 'I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book . . . It contains a balanced and informative account of the life and family background of a key figure in the development of Cambridge, the author of what is, by common consent, a classic on economic methodology, and the father of the most influential economist of the twentieth century (and of a world famous surgeon for good measure).' - D.P. O'Brien, University of Durham, UK This fascinating biography of an economist who was also a logician and administrator, is based mainly upon his virtually continuous diary. the diary provides an intimate commentary on the academic developments and conflicts in which he was closely involved as well as on his life as undergraduate, bachelor and family man.
