Abstract:

It is argued that it was the Conservative party that experienced the most serious difficulties in the decade prior to 1914, losing three consecutive elections, ousting its own leader in 1911, and being divided into several factions. This book accepts that argument in order to provide a more detailed picture of the political dynamics at work during this crucial period. Through exploring the political manifestations of Edwardian conservatism and peeling away the layers of traditional assumptions, this book makes a major contribution to our understanding of the development of modern British politics.

This crisis of Edwardian conservatism is found in the membership, activities, and ideologies of the Conservative party's right wing. Rebel on the Right reconstructs the political career and activities of one of the more colorful, controversial, and prominent members of that wing.
