In The Road from Serfdom Robert Skidelsky, one of our foremost political economists, reasserts the need for optimism.

Drawing parallels between the post-World War I political flux and conditions today, Skidelsky links the demise of communism - and its turbulent legacy - to the global failure of this century's most misguided concept: collectivism

"John Maynard Keynes was one of the seminal thinkers of the twentieth century, a luminary whose groundbreaking ideas remain even today at the center of political and economic discussion. In this work of clarity and erudition, Robert Skidelsky offers a revised and abridged version of his award-winning three-volume biography of Keynes, which has long been acclaimed as the authoritative account of the great economist-statesman's life.

John Maynard Keynes offers a sympathetic account of the life and influences of a passionate visionary."--BOOK JACKET
