Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) was a novelist, political opportunist, and ultimately prime minister. He founded modern Conservatism and invented the political novel. Professor Vincent's fine short survey, which concentrates on his ideas on race, Judaism, religion, and politics, while analysing all his fiction, offers a superb introduction to Disraeli for students and general readers alike. This book is intended for students of modern British history, political thought/theory, conservatism, English novelists, and Jewish studies.
