Benjamin Disraeli - Adam Kirsch

Benjamin Disraeli ($21), by Adam Kirsch, is a lively biography of the great British statesman who personified a 19th-century England that was increasingly open to Jews. Kirsch writes about Disraeli’s ambition, his views, and his accomplishments against the background of Disraeli’s own conflicts about his Jewish identity. Of interest to the modern reader is how conservative the Tory politician actually was.
