About This Item

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1998. First edition of this memoir by the Nobel Prize-winning economist and his wife Rose, a professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Fine in near fine dust jacket. Warmly inscribed by both authors on the half-title page, "For Dorian + John with love and thanks for your friendship Milton + Rose." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. The Friedmans come across as the last Enlightenment thinkers in a post-modern world. . . This is a book that restores your faith in reasoned discourse. . . There really are people who believe in scholarly exchange as a way to discover truth" (New York Times Book Review). The Friedmans co-authored two books on economics and public policy, Free to Choose (1980) and Tyranny of the Status Quo (1984), and founded the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice to promote the use of school vouchers and freedom of choice in education. This memoir "is almost like a letter from a couple of old friends-- a couple of old friends who had a long, compelling intellectual journey, came to know some of the great world leaders of this century, and had 60 years of happy, supportive marriage" (Fortune). "Lucky indeed, but also possessing the courage to make their own free choices. A record of personal and scientific achievement, often in opposition to prevailing orthodoxy" (James M. Buchanan).
