Conspicuous by his Absence

Kieran Healy is reading Robert Skidelsky’s John Maynard Keynes, something I have been meaning to read for some time. He is the father of Will Skidelsky, whom I met while interning for the New Statesman.

Interesting stuff that I did not realise about Wittgenstein – the Tractatus is somewhere very far down my books to read.

For the moment I am sticking with Paul Kennedy’s, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers.
