Keynes by Robert Cord


Keynes by Robert Cord

So successful was Keynes' theory that, by the mid 1940's, it was widespread across almost all of Europe's social democracies and, by the 1960's, the United States, too. Keynes personal life was no less remarkable.


'Robert Cord ... provides a thoroughly readable account, written in a lively style and, perhaps uniquely among accounts of Keynes, using colour, numerous photographs, a chronological table and numerous inserts to explain people and ideas without disrupting the main narrative ...Specialists will question some of the judgments made but that is, perhaps, to miss the point, which is to stimulate interest in a remarkable figure about whose life many people would otherwise remain ignorant.'
Times Higher Education Supplement
