John Maynard Keynes : Fighting for Freedom, 1937-1946
The eagerly awaited final volume of Robert Skidelsky's definitive biography of John Maynard Keynes covers the period from 1937, when Keynes had become the world's most influential economist, to his death in 1946. It focuses on Keynes's contribution to the financing of Britain's war effort, the building of the postwar economic order, and his role in Britain's struggle to preserve its independence within the Atlantic Alliance. Insightful and intelligent, this is a work that tells of one of the most important men of the twentieth century and provides an invaluable overview of matters that remain at the center of political and economic discussion.
