Excerpt from The Life of Benjamin Disraeli, Vol. 4: Earl of Beaconsfield; 1855 1868 Disraeli had hoped, early in 1855, to be a leading member Of a Government formed vigorously to prosecute the Crimean War. Derby's timidity had deprived him Of that prospect, and had left to him and to the Conservative party apparently only the humiliating function Of sup porting their Opponents in carrying out a policy the burden Of which they had shrunk from shouldering themselves. This was a function most uncongenial to Disraeli's temper; and it is no wonder that his mind soon turned towards the possibilities of an honourable peace. His first tentative movements in this direction, While Sebas topol was intact, were decidedly premature; but in the autumn after its fall he seized the propitious occasion, and began, in the teeth Of a hostile public Opinion, a peace propaganda which eventually culminated in the Conference and Treaty Of Paris.

John Ferris' work in strategic and intelligence history is widely praised for its originality and the breadth of its research. At last his major pioneering articles are now available in this one single volume. In Intelligence and Strategy these essential articles have been fundamentally revised to incorporate new evidence and information withheld by governments when they were first published. This volume reshapes the study of communications intelligence by tracing Britain's development of cipher machines providing the context to Ultra and Enigma, and by explaining how British and German signals intelligence shaped the desert war. The author also explains how intelligence affected British strategy and diplomacy from 1874 to 1940 and world diplomacy during the 1930s and the Second World War. Finally he traces the roots for contemporary intelligence, and analyzes intelligence and the RMA as well as the role of intelligence in the 2003 Gulf War. This volume ultimately brings new light to our understanding of the relations between intelligence, strategy and diplomacy between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 21st century.

"All is Race"

Benjamin Disraeli on Race, Nation and Empire

Inspired by Hannah Arendt's discussion of the Victorian Tory politician and novelist Benjamin Disraeli as a Jew who fought back, this book explores the complex ways in which mid-Victorian discourses of identity and belonging were interwoven with discourses of race. The book looks at Disraeli's response to the antisemitism of the period, leading him to become convinced that race was the key to understand how society works. It traces Disraeli's use of the category of race as a pivotal idea of social difference and looks at how race intersected his thinking with class, culture, gender, nation, and empire. It also shows how Disraeli's "one-nation-politics" was dependent on the idea of empire and how his representations of both nation and empire became based on race.

Disraeli was barely twenty-one when he published Vivian Grey, his first work of fiction; and the young author was at once hailed as a master of his art by an almost unanimous press. In this, as in his subsequent books, it was not so much Disraeli's notable skill as a novelist but rather his portrayal of the social and political life of the day that made him one of the most popular writers of his generation, and earned for him a lasting fame as a man of letters. In Vivian Grey is narrated the career of an ambitious young man of rank; and in this story the brilliant author has preserved to us the exact tone of the English drawing room, as he so well knew it, sketching with sure and rapid strokes a whole portrait gallery of notables, disguised in name may be, but living characters nevertheless, who charm us with their graceful manners and general air of being people of consequence. marvelously true picture of the life and character of an interesting period of English history and made notable because of Disraeli's fine imagination and vivid descriptive powers.

Democracy and the Vote in British Politics, 1848–1867

The Second Reform Act, passed in 1867, created a million new voters, doubling the electorate and propelling the British state into the age of mass politics. It marked the end of a twenty year struggle for the working class vote, in which seven different governments had promised change. Yet the standard works on 1867 are more than forty years old and no study has ever been published of reform in prior decades. This study provides the first analysis of the subject from 1848 to 1867, ranging from the demise of Chartism to the passage of the Second Reform Act. Recapturing the vibrancy of the issue and its place at the heart of Victorian political culture, it focuses not only on the reform debate itself, but on a whole series of related controversies, including the growth of trade unionism, the impact of the 1848 revolutions and the discussion of French and American democracy.

Byronic adventurer, dandy, and prolific novelist, Benjamin Disraeli was a complex and controversial political figure who finally ascended the "Greasy Pole" to become Conservative Prime Minister in 1868 and again in 1874. Six essays examine central themes in Disraeli's personal and public life, as well as his diplomatic and writing careers—five by leading scholars and one by a former Chancellor of the Exchequer. It also includes the catalog from the 2003-2004 exhibition at the Bodleian Library, which focused on some of the key stepping stones in Disraeli's long and fascinating life, including his career as a novelist. Among the items illustrated and discussed are the "Mutilated Diary," personal and political letters, political cartoons from the John Johnson Collection of printed ephemera, images from Disraeli's "Gallery of Affection," and the fan signed by the delegates to the Congress of Berlin in 1878.

Here is the first book to cover the history of British Liberalism from its founding doctrines in the later eighteenth century to the final dissolution of the Liberal party into the Liberal Democrats in 1988. The Party dominated British politics for much of the later nineteenth-century, most notably under Gladstone, whose premierships spanned 1868-1894, and during the early twentieth, but after the resignation of Lloyd George in 1922 the Liberal Party never held office again. The decline of the Party remains a unique phenomenon in British politics and Alan Sykes illuminates its dramatic and peculiar circumstances in this comprehensive study.
