Talk about Asquith


Shalizel
Roy Jenkins was an excellent biographer. However, having read several of his biographies I found that his life experiences in politics helped make his later works much more insightful. 'Asquith' was written in the early 1960s before Jenkins' political career had largely begun. This makes the biography much more of a historian's work rather than an assessment of the exercise of power by one who knows what power is.

Probably rather out of date now. Jenkins is an elegant stylist. Some episodes lightly treated: the 1916 Rebellion in Ireland; the decision to go to war in 1914. I got the impression Jenkins ran out of steam in the latter stages of the book. Still,overall, I would recommend it.
Braswyn
In this well written biography Roy Jenkins shows Asquith to be a master of presentation and argument (he was a lawyer) while lacking much interest in the issues.

He (Asquith) seemed to be almost unaware of the industrial challenges facing Great Britian from Germany and the U.S.A. and it took Churchill to get above the political squabbling and say (about Germany), "She is organized not only for war, but for peace. We are organized for nothing except party politics.... I say thrust a big slice of Bismarkism over the whole underside of our industrial system, and await the consequences whatever they may be with a good conscience."

This wasn't for Asquith. He was a gentleman paternalist who joined forces with the labour wing of his Liberal party (Lloyd George) to pass the 1909 budget founding the socialist Welfare State. Asquith and Lloyd George typically celebrated with dinner at the Savoy while British industry entered a further half century of decline, strikes and competitive failure.

This book was the best book I read in 1969, a year in which I read 50 books, 15 fiction and 35 non-fiction. Asquith was born in Yorkshire on Sept 12, 1852, and the account of his life up to 1916 could not be better done. He of course fell on personal bad time after he ceased being Prime mInister when Lloyd George replaced him, and the rest of his life is dismal. He died Feb. 15, 1928. This is a great book, one I have treasured in my memory in all the years since I read it.

Very well researched and written. For anyone interested in the period, a good read.
