An eloquent biography of Lloyd George out of power and still at the heart of British politics: his "spectre haunted the Cabinet Room of his successors like Banquo's ghost." The author laments that petty politics prevented his much-admired subject from returning to leadership and realizing his bold vision of needed reforms.
