Summary: John Maynard Keynes, one of the most influential of 20th century economists, has returned to prominence during the recent global crisis. Despite his intellectual importance, a vast quantity of his writings on economics, philosophy, politics and other subjects remains unpublished. This project aims to address this issue by publishing these writings in a twelve volume edition, commencing with necessary groundwork for the edition as a whole and preparation of the first two volumes. The expected outcomes are a prestigious international edition, deeper understandings of Keynes's economic theories and policies and their foundations, and subsequent publications analysing the significance of these writings.
