John Kenneth Galbraith was famous long ago as America's most widely read economist, until his expansive understanding of economic liberalism was pushed aside by political events and conservative ideology. Galbraith is still alive, however, and at 96 still writing provocative books (his latest, The Economics of Innocent Fraud, was a bestseller last year in Britain). Let's hope the professor is around long enough to enjoy a Galbraith revival. His books, I feel certain, are going to come back in vogue.

The eminent economist and public servant retraces the main and telling events and relationships of his eventful life and draws sharp portraits of some famous and infamous people met along the way

GOOD SERVICE AND A VERY INTERESTING BOOK.

Tough book to read, for me at least..

Those who seek a captivating 20C journey need look no further. One travels from the author's Canadian roots through academia (OAC, UC Berkeley, Cambridge, Princeton, Harvard), public service (farm policy, the New Deal, the wartime Office of Price Administration, the US Strategic Bombing Survey in Germany and Japan, Indian Ambassadorship), politics (FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, LBJ, Vietnam opposition, McGovern, Nixon), and influential authorship. Each candid chapter is a pleasure.

Galbraith, as always, is consistently sagacious. Like his friend George W. Ball Jr (`The Past Has Another Pattern,' Norton 1982), he's a welcome contrast to subsequent public servants who use their experience to amass personal fortunes by promoting special interests.

Highly recommended.
