Reviews

'The author is faithful to the General Theory while bringing in prior and following writings of Keynes at the proper places in the arguments, as well as making judicious use of secondary sources. Students should come away from reading this fine book with a very good overview as well as knowledge of the details of the General Theory and its setting.' - G.C. Harcourt, Jesus College, Cambridge, UK
