#AcBookWeek 23-28 January 2017

A celebration of the diversity, innovation and influence of academic books


We are delighted to announce the winner of the Academic Book Week public vote to find the academic book that has most influenced modern Britain, is: John Maynard Keynes’ The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money – a book which continues to impact modern Britain’s economic policy, and which was instrumental in determining how the UK managed the 2007-8 financial crisis.
