    • Lloyd George Biography in Cartoons
      Folder containing 2 files

      Maynard Keynes famously described Lloyd George as "This siren, this goat footed bard, this half human visitor". Other writers described a man of many parts- the wizard, the bounder, the spellbinder, circus performer and robber of wealth.

      Cartoonists delighted in showing him in these and other roles.

      Lloyd George CartoonsThis fascinating book by Alan Mumford provides first as context a narrative of his career and an analysis of his position as an outsider. Further context is given in a review of the huge increase in circulation of newspapers, amplifying the number of people who saw cartoons and were potentially influenced by them.

      The 160 cartoons in the book focus on the main events in Lloyd Georges life- early struggles over education in Wales, The Boer War, the 1909 Peoples Budget and the House of Lords, Marconi, the "man who won the war" and then the man to conquer unemployment.
