"The most important economic document relating to World War I and its aftermath."
—John Kenneth Galbraith
"This is a very great book. Mr. Keynes writes with a fullness of knowledge, an incisiveness of judgment, and a penetration into the ultimate causes of economic events. The style is like finely hammered steel. It is full of unforgettable phrases and of vivid portraits etched in the biting acid of a passionate moral indignation."
—H. J. Laski, The Nation--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
