Skidelsky brilliantly synthesizes from John Maynard Keynes's career and life the aspects of his thinking that apply most directly to today's world. In so doing, Skidelsky shows that Keynes's mixture of pragmatism and realism is more pertinent and applicable than ever.
Robert Skidelsky is the Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick. His three volume biography of the economist John Maynard Keynes (1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes, including the Lionel Gelber Prize for International Relations and the Council on Foreign Relations Arthur Ross Book Award. He is the author of The World After Communism (1995). He was made a life peer in 1991, and was elected Fellow of the British Academy in 1994.
