Abstract: 
A.W.H. Phillips is little known to the economics profession today, except at the creator of the Phillips curve. Bollard's engaging biography tells the story of a provincial New Zealander and practical engineer, who emerges as a hero in World War II, and plots a spectacular rise from 3rd class sociology degree to Tooke Professor of Economics at the LSE in just eight years. Bollard's biograph is a welcome corrective - both in demonstrating that Phillips' most important contributions to economics lay in the realms of macroeconomic dynamics and time-series econometrics and in showing how those aspects of his work must be appreciated to place the more famous Phillips curve into perspective.
