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.
'"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 "Mélange Keynes" collected and edited by his nephew...'. The Times Literary Supplement
