John Maynard Keynes Summary


John Maynard Keynes: Fighting for Britain 1937 - 1946 by Robert Skidelsky

It is the culmination of a remarkable work dealing with the life and influences of a passionate visionary who finally succeeded in achieving respectability and acceptance on his own terms. Dealing with the period from 1937, when Keynes had become the most famous economist and one of the most famous figures in Britain, to his death in 1946, Volume III focuses on Keynes's outstanding contribution to the financing of Britain's war effort, to the building of the post-war economic order, and on his role in the 'other war' - Britain's struggle to preserve its independence within the Atlantic Alliance.

'Nobody who wants to understand one of the most extraordinary Englishmen of his time can do without this biography' E.J. Hobsbawm

'Robert Skidelsky has devoted 20 years to his life of John Maynard Keynes and, with this, the third volume of a biography of Proustian proportions, he has demonstrated that the whole enterprise was worth every ounce of the struggle.' William Keegan, Observer

'This is a thoroughly fair-minded book, diligently researched and elegantly written. It crowns the edifice of one of the outstanding biographical enterprises of our time... It hides little or nothing, enabling us to understand far more about one of the giants of the 20th century.' Anthony Howard, Management Today
