  • The Politics of Pleasure: A Portrait of Benjamin Disraeli By William Kuhn He was acknowledged to be a brilliant debater and parliamentarian, and is still England s first and only Jewish prime minister, but there was much to Benjamin Disraeli than his career as a nineteenth century politician Dandy, novelist, social climber, he often behaved as if politics was merely a conduit to a interesting life rather than an intellectual vocation.He was acknowledged to be a brilliant debater and parliamentarian, and is still England s first and only Jewish prime minister, but there was much to Benjamin Disraeli than his career as a nineteenth century politician Dandy, novelist, social climber, he often behaved as if politics was merely a conduit to a interesting life rather than an intellectual vocation This new biography takes four areas of Disraeli s complex character and through them constructs an entirely new portrait of one of our most fascinating prime ministers Exploring Disraeli s attitudes to society, the monarchy, his own sexuality and his innate political daring, William Kuhn rediscovers his irreverence and sheds new light on the man and his legacy Drawing on primary sources and much original research, THE POLITICS OF PLEASURE seeks to restore the core characteristic of humanity to someone who has long been judged merely another eminent but worthy Victorian It also explores the game of politics as Disraeli saw it the fun and pleasure of it, as a means of persuading the electorate to take an interest in a way that often seems lost today.

    An interest biography on Disraeli which plainly paints the most famous victorian PM as an inspiration for Oscar Wilde, with his love of turkish baths, dressing up and constant love of all things greek Fun to read Perhaps the non too subltle hinting that the PM was homosexual constant made the book drag on by a hundred pages Worth reading.
