Oxford University Press

The first of two case studies of Lloyd George. Discusses his successes at widening the social base of the Liberal Party and at provoking the House of Lords into fighting and losing the constitutional crisis of 1909–11. Considers why he failed to construct a hegemonic centre party after the First World War, or to stifle the rise of the Labour Party.

Keywords:   centre party, constitutional crisis, House of Lords, Labour Party, Liberal Party, David Lloyd George, social base
