Liberalism and the Social Problem

Winston Churchill is renowned as a brilliant Conservative politician and statesman--but he wasnt always a Conservative. In 1904, he crossed over to join the Liberal party--becoming Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies when the Liberals took office, and later joining the Liberal Cabinet.

This collection of speeches documents Churchills dramatic shift toward a more progressive governing philosophy. They contain his thoughts on some of the most important issues of the time, including the Peoples Budget, a highly controversial new wealth distribution initiative. It led to the House of Lords first attempt in two hundred years to challenge the power of the House of Commons, and ultimately to the Parliament Act of 1911, asserting the House of Commons legislative powers.

This compilation is fascinating not only for its historical context, but for the keen political insight and strategy of one of the twentieth centurys greatest political leaders.
