About the author


“Wrigley’s study of the Lloyd George coalition… {presents} a wealth of new material and judicious interpretation of events which contribute significantly to our understanding of the reconstruction process in Britain.” - Jonathan Zeitlin, Social History

“Wrigley is at his best in seeing how the government’s response to events in Russia and Ireland -as well as the protracted problem of peace-making – impinged on Lloyd George’s industrial policy, just as continuing fissures within the coalition impeded his hopes for a program of social reconstruction and for a fusion of moderate Tories and Liberals in a new Center Party.” - John W. Brennan, History: Review of New Books.
