The first volume of John Grigg's biography covers the future Prime Minister's life from 1863 to 1902. Grigg re-examines many stock assumptions about Lloyd George, never losing sight of the man behind the politician, nor forgetting that politics were, after all, the dominating passion in his life. What emerges is, consequently, more than a study of the young Lloyd George; it is in many respects an interpretation of the man, both as a private individual and as a major historic personality. It should provide an entertaining read for anyone interested in modern British history, or in the psychology of genius.
