[About the book]

The first volume in this series - The Keynesian Tradition - explored aspects of the intellectual and political forces that transformed the policy landscape around the middle of the twentieth century. This second volume examines aspects of the forces that sought, successfully, to reverse that revolution. Both volumes illustrate the fact that we neglect the subterranean world in which our subject is constructed at our peril.
Bringing together the unique insights offered by archival evidence, the evolution of the Anti-Keynesian movement is traced, and its main proponents studied and analysed. With incisive research and masterful analysis, this volume focuses on the evolution of thought within this school, and should be an essential companion for those interested in the Anti-Keynesian Tradition, and in the evolution of economics more generally.
