Summary
"The wide array of contributors to this celebratory volume reflects the richly varied life of John Kenneth Galbraith--professor of economics and writer, public servant and ambassador, eminent collector of Indian art, and head of a gifted family. Each contributor writes from his or her own highly individual perspective, whether informed by politics, journalism, economics, academe, or art--or just as a good friend. Some of the essays are anecdotal and humorous; others, more serious, show how Galbraith's ideas have influenced the contributors; still others underscore the contribution his ideas have made to a better understanding of the world by us all. Galbraith himself is present in a collection of his memorable aphorisms--not least in his thoughts on writing--compiled as the closing chapter of the book. The contributors include Derek Bok, Carlos Fuentes, Peter Galbraith, Katharine Graham, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Robert B. Reich, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., and the 1998 Nobel laureate in economics, Amartya Sen. Book jacket."--Jacket
