This first volume in Skidelsky's magisterial three-volume biography of the great economist of the 20th century covers Keynes's years at Oxford, his service as a British civil servant, and his friendships with Lytton Strachey, Duncan Grant and other members of the Bloomsbury group. The subtitle "Hopes Betrayed" refers to his disagreement with the Treaty of Versailles.
