About this book

Wrigley demonstrates that Lloyd George was moulded by Liberalism and, as a solicitor, admired business people even if he was a vehement critic of landowners. Highly sympathetic to poor people and unorganised labour, he was not trade union minded.

About this author


“Wrigley can rightly point to the surprising historiographical neglect of Lloyd George’s relationship with the Labour movement. His book does much to repair this omission…{The pre-war chapters} offer an interpretation of Lloyd George’s career as a pragmatic radical which confirms that he was supremely an executive politician; he was the man who got things done.“ - Peter Clarke, History.
