John Kenneth Galbraith's books - among them 'The Affluent Society' and 'American Capitalism' - are famous for good reason. They are models of provocative good sense that warn prophetically of the dangers of deregulated markets, war in Asia, corporate greed, and stock-market bubbles. In Richard Parker's hands Galbraith's biography becomes a vital reinterpretation of American economics and public policy. This masterful chronicle gives color, depth, and meaning to the record of an extraordinary life.
