The George Webber Memorial Lecture

In Disraeli or, The Two Lives former foreign secretary Lord Hurd and Edward Young tell the story of Benjamin Disraeli, a bankrupt Jewish school-dropout and trashy novelist who reached the top of the Victorian Conservative Party. Separating the man from the many myths that followed him, they bring alive the true genius and wit of Disraeli, twice prime minister and arguably the most gifted parliamentarian of the 19th century.
