British History – Six Key Elections, 1906-51

In this course, Professor Adrian Smith (University of Southampton) thinks about British history in the first half of the twentieth century through six key elections—1906, 1923, 1931, 1945, 1950 and 1951. As we look at each election, we explore the key issues of the period, the dominant political figures, and the importance of Britain’s first-past-the-post system in the translation of the popular vote into seats in the Commons.

The 1906 General Election: A Liberal Landslide

In this module, we focus on the 1906 General Election, in which the Liberals led by Henry Campbell-Bannerman won a landslide victory over Conservatives.
