He was, it has been argued, 'the maker of Europe'. The theme of this book is how power corrupts. Lloyd George's pecadilloes, which more than once threatened his career, his intrigues with Zaharoff, and the building up of his political fund with which to hold the main parties to ransom are shown as influences in the process of corruption."
