While most historians have regarded Lloyd George's early career as a mere precursor of his Westminster career, Price argues that the young politician had a very strong commitment to Home Rule, official status for the Welsh language and strong labour legislation; becoming a careerist politician after 1896 was the only way he could further the cause of the Welsh 'national movement'. The study also investigates Lloyd George's 'Welsh' perception of major issues during his period of power (1908-1922). Celtic Radicals series.
