John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of the Peace

Before this full-bore, fangs-bared assault on the Treaty of Versailles and the politicians who made it, John Maynard Keynes was an aesthete, an intellectual, and a clever sometime advisor to the British Treasury. Afterwards, he was a celebrity and a force to be reckoned with in the making of economic policy. The anger and despair of this book had been building for some time, as Keynes had watched the slaughter of World War I and then saw the prospects for successful post-war reconstruction slipping away.
