Based on an intimate knowledge of the subject and his environment, this biography of the most influential economist of the twentieth century traces Keynes' career on all its many levels. From academic Cambridge, to artistic Bloomsbury, to official Whitehall and to the City, we see the intellectual roots of Keynes' achievements and failures. We also see how he left his mark on the modern world.

Donald E. Moggridge is Professor of Economics at the University of Toronto. He has published widely in the fields of modern British monetary history and the history of modern economic thought, with a particular emphasis on Keynes. His publications include The Return to Gold, British Monetary Policy, 1924-1931, and Keynes; and on behalf of the Royal Economic Society, he edited The Collected Writings of John Maynard Keynes.Review:
Keynes firmly believed that economists' lives were worth studying as a way of illuminating their ideas; and Donald Moggridge's monumental new biography does this quite brilliantly for `JMK' himself.
–Niall Ferguson, The Daily Mail
...in a single...volume, Maynard Keynes: An Economist's Biography, Canadian scholar D.E. Moggridge offers a sound, analytical, carefully researched account of the man who invented deficit spending...he sets forth the facts and issu es with precision and sharp intelligence.
–Merle Rubin, The Christian Science Monitor
[Moggridge] writes throughout with a great sureness of touch . . . combining an outsider's perspective with an instinctive insider's knowledge. It is an admirable biography . . . wise and readable.
–Roy Jenkins, The Observer
. . . a biography of Keynes that is more up-to-date and more thorough than any of its predecessors . . . the comprehensiveness of this work will insure its status as the standard academic biography of Keynes for some time.
I have learned an enormous amount from this book. I had known Keynes well as a fellow working economist from the 1920s to the end of his life in 1945. But by the 1920s he was already the great man and confidant of senior statesmen. I had known little of his earlier life, of his relations to his Bloomsbury and Charleston friends and of them to Lydia, of how he came belatedly to economics through philosophy. Nor did I know the detail of his public life. All this Don Moggridge has been able to discover and record with very great detail and skill.
–Sir Austin Robinson, University of Cambridge
