Description
Historian Peter Clarke provides a timely and masterful account of the life and work of John Maynard Keynes, whose ideas inspired the New Deal and helped rebuild world economies after World War II, and have come center-stage again after the harsh lessons of the international economic crisis of 2008. Keynes was not a traditional economist: He was a polemicist, iconoclastic public intellectual, peer of the realm, and political operative, as well as an openly homosexual Bohemian who befriended Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster. This insightful, compact text, praised as the "place to begin if you want to understand the economist's personality and charisma" by the New York Times, brings Keynes's genius and skepticism alive for an era fraught with economic difficulties that he surely would have relished solving.

"Clarke has made a contribution to the sociology of knowledge—to the way great ideas are created—that often eludes many of those who write about and sometimes worship Keynes."—Columbia Journalism Review

"There are lessons aplenty to be drawn from Clarke's recitation of the facts of Keynes's life and thought—not least the lunacy of cutting government spending in tough times. A useful, timely primer."—Kirkus Reviews
