John Kenneth Galbraith: His Life, His Politics, His Economics

John Kenneth Galbraith: His Life, His Politics, His EconomicsJohn Kenneth Galbraith (1908-2006) was one of America#8217;s most famous economists for good reason. From his acerbic analysis of America#8217;s #8220;private wealth and public squalor#8221; to his denunciation of the wars in Vietnam and Iraq, Galbraith consistently challenged #8220;conventional wisdom#8221; (a phrase he coined). He did so as a witty commentator on America#8217;s political follies and as a versatile author of bestselling books#8212;such as The Affluent Society and The New Industrial State#8212;that warn of the dangers of deregulated markets, corporate greed, and inattention to the costs of our military power. Here, in the first full-length biography of Galbraith and his times, Richard Parker provides not only a nuanced portrait of this extraordinary man, but also an important reinterpretation of twentieth-century public policy and economic practices.

#8220;Whatever you may think of his ideas, John Kenneth Galbraith has led an extraordinary life. . . . Doing justice to this life story requires an outsize biography, one that not only tells Mr. Galbraith#8217;s tale but sets it on the broader canvas of America#8217;s political and economic evolution. And Richard Parker#8217;s book does just that.#8221;#8212;Economist

#8220;Parker#8217;s book is more than a chronicle of Galbraith#8217;s life; it#8217;s a history of American politics and policy from FDR through George W. Bush. . . . It will make readers more economically and politically aware.#8221;#8212;USA Today

#8220;The most readable and instructive biography of the century.#8221;#8212;William F. Buckley, National Review

#8220;The story of this man#8217;s life and work is wonderfully rendered in this magnum opus, and offers an antidote to the public ennui, economic cruelty, and government malfeasance that poison life in America today.#8221;#8212;James Carroll, Boston Globe
