Disraeli Or The Two Lives

Benjamin Disraeli was the most gifted parliamentarian of the nineteenth century and a superb orator, writer and wit - but how much do we really know about the man behind the words?

'As Douglas Hurd and Edward Young point out in their splendidly written, finely judged and thoroughly persuasive book, a vast chasm yawned between the real Disraeli and his posthumous reinvention' Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

'Not only, they tell us in this vigorously debunking romp through his political life, did he never use the phrases "One Nation" or "Tory Democracy", he was actively hostile to the concepts that they are now understood to represent' Sam Leith, The Spectator

'The book is more a study in character ...than a staid political narrative. As a result, Disraeli: Or the Two Lives is full of unexpected jolts and paradoxes ...It proves an unflagging pleasure to read' Richard Davenport-Hines, Guardian

'So intoxicating that you will find yourself snorting it up in one go, as I did, with great pleasure' Boris Johnson, Mail on Sunday
