Library bibliography - Liberal history and biography

What follows is a bibliography of books on British liberal history, including biographies. It serves as the "wish list" for the National Liberal Club's library, and is made available here for general reference. The Club also maintains separate bibliographies of general political reference works; books on liberal philosophy; theses on the British liberal tradition; and pamphlets on the British liberal tradition.

This bibliography has been compiled by the National Liberal Club's Honorary Librarian, Dr. Seth Thévoz, incorporating an earlier bibliography produced by the Liberal History Group

Items in bold are already a part of the Club library.
