"This well-researched new biography uses Disreali's wide range of novels to address fascinating questions about him and provide a close reading of his political career and shifting loyalties... Cesarani doesn't gloss over Disreali's weaknesses: his numerous affairs, profligacy and constant debt (only parliamentary immunity kept him out of prison). Yet his portrait of this complex figure remains sympathetic..."-Sara Jo Ben Zvi, Segula -- Sara Jo Ben Zvi * Segula * "A vivid and illuminating new biography... [and] a crisp persuasive book.-Jonathan Freedland, the Guardian -- Johnathan Freedland * The Guardian * "This groundbreaking biography is a passionate and stimulating account of Disraeli as both man and myth. With pace and clarity the author, writing at the height of his powers, skillfully and intelligently unravels the enduring mystery of Disraeli's Jewishness."-Bryan Cheyette, author of Diasporas of the Mind -- Bryan Cheyette "... [an] absorbing study of Disreali the Jew"-Daniel Finkelstein, The Times -- Daniel Finkelstein * The Times * "Cesarani, the late noted Holocaust historian and award-winning author, succinctly tells the complex story of Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) . . . . This readable portrait is a great addition to European history, biography, and Jewish collections."-Dan Kaplan, Booklist -- Dan Kaplan * Booklist * "A lively, original, and revisionist account of Disraeli."-Todd Endelman, University of Michigan -- Todd Endelman "A focused biography that derives its excellent specificity from Disraeli's writings."-Kirkus Reviews * Kirkus Reviews * "Superb."-Benjamin Balint, Wall Street Journal -- Benjamin Balint * Wall Street Journal *
