Notes

First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to Theodore Sorensen on the front free endpaper: "For Theo Sorensen with great affection. From John G. 1971". Ted Sorensen (1928-2010) had a significant behind-the-scenes influence on American politics in the 1960s. He served as speechwriter for John F. Kennedy and was one of his closest advisers; when Sorensen drafted Kennedy's inauguration address, he solicited Galbraith for advice and borrowed heavily from Galbraith's works. Following Kennedy's assassination, he briefly worked for Lyndon Johnson, and served as a major advisor to Robert Kennedy in his presidential campaign. He also ran for the Senate for New York in 1970, was unsuccessfully nominated by Jimmy Carter as director of the CIA in 1977, and managed Gary Hart's presidential campaign in 1984. A Contemporary Guide to Economics, Peace and Laughter gathers Galbraith's essays from across the 1960s on various subjects.
