The book stresses how lucky my generation was in coming to maturity at a time of wide-open opportunity — hence the importance of providing a similar environment for generations to come.

Lucky Jerry: The Life of a Political Economist” (published by Archway Publishing) is the memoir of author Benjamin Jerry Cohen, a modestly successful academic, told with “panache, verve, and even a touch of whimsy.”

Cohen describes how as a first-generation offspring of penniless immigrants, a mischievous student and chubby teenager, he eventually attained an Ivy League education and won several prestigious university appointments while writing 16 books relating to his scholarly specialty, international political economy. As he leads readers through his experiences, Cohen also details his global travels to lecture or conduct research in more than four dozen countries and his long plunge into the world of dog shows where he entered the ring with a succession of Briards, a variety of French sheep dog. Included is a ghost-written memoir by one of his dogs about the three years they shared together in Paris, France.

“The book stresses how lucky my generation was in coming to maturity at a time of wide-open opportunity — hence the importance of providing a similar environment for generations to come,” Cohen says.

“Lucky Jerry” is available for purchase online at the Archway link above, from Barnes & Noble and on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Lucky-Jerry-Life-Political-Economist/dp/1665711604.
