‘John Grigg is a biographer who loves his subject and captures him with artistry – a pleasure to read. He has given us the most intimate and subtly drawn portrait we have ever had of this remarkable man’
Paul Addison, New Statesman
The award-winning second volume of John Grigg’s highly acclaimed biography of Lloyd George.
This sequel to Grigg’s enthusiastically praised The Young Lloyd George describes the career of David Lloyd George from 1902 to 1911, its most exciting and fruitful phase before the out break of World War I.
In it he is seen evolving from the liveliest of Opposition back-benchers to the most dynamic and controversial member of a great Liberal government.
The central drama is the political constitutional conflict surrounding Lloyd George’s 1909 Budget, but there are many fascinating sub-plots including his difficulties with the suffragettes and with several individual women.
As a whole, Grigg’s portrait is sympathetic, yet not adverse to criticism, giving a vivid and fair impression of Lloyd George in relation to his leading contemporaries and as an outstanding figure of the Edwardian age.
