John Maynard Keynes 1883-1946: Economist, Philosopher, Statesman
Robert Skidelsky’s three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes has been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman’s life. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this abridged biography offers us a sympathetic account of the life and influences of a passionate visionary, and an invaluable insight into the formation of a new economic philosophy whose ideas remain even today at the centre of political and economic discussion.
‘In Robert Skidelsky’s magnificently intelligent biography – in my opinion the greatest of the last century and, possibly, of this one too – Keynes has received the best tribute he could deserve’ Mark Archer, Financial Times Magazine
‘As brilliant as his full-length version . . . this one-volume version can be strongly recommended to the many non-economists who are mystified but intrigued by the Keynes legend’ William Keegan, Observer
'Nobody who wants to understand one of the most extraordinary Englishmen of his time can do without this biography' Eric Hobsbawm
