From the library of The Right Honourable The Lord Boothby KBE (1900-1986). The condition of the book reflects the interest with which Boothby devoured it. 'Boothby was particularly impressed by Keynes' concern about the impact of economic matters on the lives of individuals and society as a whole, rather than theoretical economics, and his hatred of unemployment and poverty, which he also considered unnecessary as well as evil.' (Bob Boothby: A Portrait by Robert Rhodes James, 1991).
