This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is British politician Richard Wainwright and his role in the Liberal Party and the Liberal Democrats. Wainwright joined the Party at its lowest ebb and he helped lead its return from the wilderness when others drifted elsewhere. He also witnessed the transformation of the Party, including its alliance with the Labour Party and its alliance and merger with the Socialist Democratic Party (SDP) to form the Liberal Democrats.
