THE DEFINITIVE SINGLE-VOLUME BIOGRAPHY

Robert Skidelsky's three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes has been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman's life. Here, Skidelsky has revised and abridged his magnum opus into one definitive book, which examines in its entirety the intellectual and ideological journey that led an extraordinarily gifted young man to concern himself with the practical problems of an age overshadowed by war. John Maynard Keynes offers a sympathetic account of the life of a passionate visionary and an invaluable insight into the economic philosophy that still remains at the centre of political and economic thought.

ROBERT SKIDELSKY is Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. His three volume biography of John Maynard Keynes (1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes, including the Lionel Gelber Prize for International Relations and the Council on Foreign Relations Prize for International Relations. ('This three-volume life of the British economist should be given a Nobel Prize for History if there was such a thing' - Norman Stone.) He was made a life peer in 1991, and a Fellow of the British Academy in 1994.

Review:

A masterpiece of biographical and historical analysis ( New York Times)

Book Description:

Indispensable for students of economics, of twentieth-century history and for any reader keen to gain an insight into the life of one of the most remarkable figures of the last century. 'Nobody who wants to understand one of the most extraordinary Englishmen of his time can do without this biography' Eric Hobsbawm 'A classic . . . the author knows his subject as intimately as any historian could' Niall Ferguson, Sunday Telegraph 'It is very unlikely that Lord Skidelsky's three volumes on J.M. Keynes will be surpassed, at least in the 21st century' Andrew Roberts 'Nobody knows more about Keynes than Lord Skidelsky' Daniel Johnson, Daily Telegraph
