5.0 out of 5 stars Gladstone and Disraeli splendidly compared, 4 Sept. 2013
This review is from: The Great Rivalry: Disraeli and Gladstone (Hardcover)
The Great Rivalry; Gladstone and Disraeli, A Dual Biography is the successor to Dick Leonard's excellent trilogy of the lives of British Prime Ministers from the eighteenth century to the present day. Leonard is a leading authority on politics and elections in the UK and EU, and was Assistant Editor and then Brussels Correspondent of The Economist after a term as an independent-minded (Labour) MP himself, and he has brought to the project the freshness of a political journalist skilled in the arts and the pragmatic compromises required in politics and the day-to-day political necessities of finding allies and dealing with dissidents, as well as establishing popular identity as leaders and achievers. The Great Rivalry, building on the individual biographies in the trilogy, describes the political drama of the most fascinating personal rivalry in British political history, between the magisterial Gladstone and the eclectic, mercurial Disraeli, an unlikely Victorian as we imagine them but unexpectedly a favourite (and flatterer) of the Queen. History as it was no doubt seen by contemporary commentators as it happened, and an insight into an age.
