The twenty-eight essays in this fascinating and important collection may be divided into three groups: the first is concerned with Keynes's early life and his relations with 'Bloomsbury' and Cambridge, the second with his major contributions to economics and to British and world affairs (written for the general reader as well as for economists), and the third deals with various aspects of his life and work which reveal the immense range of his intellectual and other interests. The book is, in effect, a biography by many authors.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'"Everyone is somebody's nephew," ... but few uncles among the shades, and surely none of so great a name, can have been as kindly served by theirs as the subject of this "Melange Keynes" collected and edited by his nephew ...'. The Times Literary Supplement
'The book is a delight to read. Economists and mere admirers of human genius will treasure all the essays ...'. Political Science Quarterly
'Much has been written about the importance of Keynes's contribution to modern economic thinking, but little about Keynes the man. This enormously interesting collection of essays redresses the balance. We get from them a many-sided view of Keynes - as lover, art and book collector, biographer, philosopher ...'. New Humanist
'How is anyone actually to review this book? Who on earth could possibly deal with so wide a variety of subjects and at the same time maintain that air of confident expertise we expect of a review? ... Keynes himself could have done it easily ... with what gusto he would have addressed himself to the task and complained, with half serious indignation, that there was no essay on Keynes the farmer.' Times Educational Supplement
