Promotional Information

Disraeli is one of the most fascinating men of the nineteenth century. This masterly biography, written by an outstanding popular historian, concentrates on his intriguing private life. Christopher Hibbert is, according to Amanda Foreman, 'one of England's greatest living historical writers, and reading anything by him is pure pleasure'. He has a tremendous commercial and critical track record in historical biography -- particularly in his 'personal histories' of Elizabeth I, George III, Queen Victoria, Nelson, Wellington, the Marlboroughs, and Napoleon. There are other biographies of Disraeli, but none that are written with the fresh and entertaining approach that Hibbert brings to everything he writes. Disraeli's home, Hughenden Manor, is a National Trust property and visited by thousands of people every year.

About the Author

Christopher Hibbert was described in the New Statesman as `a pearl of biographers', in the Sunday Times as `a gloriously versatile writer', and in the TES as `perhaps the most gifted popular historian we have'. His many highly acclaimed books include lives of Mussolini, Samuel Johnson, Wellington, Nelson, Queen Victoria and Napoleon; biographies of cities such as London, Rome, Venice and Florence; histories of the Cavaliers and Roundheads and The Great Mutiny, and a social history of the English.

Reviews

'engaging new biography' The Guardian 'a fine new biography...an acute and insightful personal biography.' Andrew Roberts Daily Telegraph 'In this shouty world, Hibbert's account of the private life of Benjamin Disraeli comes as an immensely dependable relief...Innumerable younger historians owe Hibbert an immense debt, although he is probably too unassuming to allow them to pay it.' Sunday Times '...the book is thoroughly enjoyable...What Hibbert does extremely well is to construct a readable, well-written narrative...a superbly skilful historical writer.' The Spectator
