Keynes's Vision is a readable and thought-provoking essay about the ideas of one of the most influential statesmen of the twentieth century. It shows how John Maynard Keynes formulated a new system of political economy, as different and inspiring as the political economies of Adam Smith or Karl Marx. Keynes based politics and economics on traditional Greek concepts, but his unique system was misunderstood. Athol Fitzgibbons goes back to Keynes's early philosophical works, which have remained neglected or unpublished, and reveals the vision behind them. By tracing it through the Collected Writings, he draws out an unsuspected and evocative theme running through all Keynes's major works. This scholarly study will revise previous ideas about Keynes. It explains in clear language how Keynes understood political and economic matters of significance, and gives a fresh insight into his approach to economic policy.

' This is a book in the heroic tradition and it bucks a trend in the profession which increasingly casts Keynes as villain ... Fitzgibbon's book is extremely valuable in bringing out the coherent vision of Keynes which can be found in these and other parts of his works.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'short, elegant and strikingly original book' Financial Times 'tremendously thoughtful and scholarly analysis of Keynes's writings ... The sign of a good book is that it initiates debate; we are in Fitzgibbons's debt for focusing our attentiion on a subject of fundamental importance and for providing such a firm foundation for further debate.' Sheila Dow, University of Stirling. The Manchester School of Economic and Social Studies
