See a book by Robert Skidelsky: Politicians and the Slump, published in 1967. It is maiunly concerned with the 1929 Labour government though its epilogue shows great promise. Try David Marquand's 1977 biography of Ramsay MacDonald. It provides a good insight into MacDonbald's methodolgy of being prime minister and the difficulty he had in forming cabinets.
