Robert Skidelskys three-volume biography of John Maynard Keynes has been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesmans life. Here, Skidelsky has revised and abridged his magnum opus into one definitive book, which examines in its entirety the intellectual and ideological journey that led an extraordinarily gifted young man to concern himself with the practical problems of an age overshadowed by war. Meticulously researched and beautifully written, John Maynard Keynesoffers a sympathetic account of the life and influences of a passionate visionary and an invaluable insight into the economic philosophy that still remains at the center of political and economic thought.

Robert Skidelsky, a professor of political economy at Warwick University, is also the author of Politicians and the Slump and Oswald Mosley.
