The Shadow of Keynes

By Elizabeth S. Johnson and Harry G. Johnson
University of Chicago Press, 1979
253 pp. $15.00

The late Professor Johnson as student, teacher and scholar, and his wife as editor of four volumes of Keynes's collected works, lived much in the shadow they delineate so sharply. The man, the milieu, the ideas and the followers are vividly and not always admiringly presented. A kind of Canadian populism informs the authors'judgments of what they see as largely the product of late-Victorian, aristocratic values. Though most of the papers have been published before, they gain from being put together in spite of some repetition. This is one of the most attractive books about economic thought in a long time.
