5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Short Introduction to Disraeli?, 21 July 2008
Dr. N. A. Hall "Nigel Hall" (Liverpool, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Disraeli (Lancaster Pamphlets) (Paperback)
This short work might possibly be the best short introduction to the life and political work of the great nineteenth century statesman Benjamin Disraeli.

It fell to Disraeli to lead the Conservative/Tory Party back from the political wilderness following Sir Robert Peel. Recently, attempts have been made to rehabilitate the reputation of the Early of Derby, who succeeded Peel as party leader. However, it was to 'Dizzy' that the revival of the party was chiefly due, eventually becoming Prime Minister and leaving the legacy of so-called 'One Nation' Conservatism.

The virue of Walton's book is that it is short, readable and yet scholarly. Walton outlines the debates concerning Disraeli and his policies and usefully discusses the work of key Disraelian historians.

An excellent book for AS/A2/undergraduate studies and the general reader with an interest in Victorian history and politics.
