This text offers a different interpretation of Britain's role in the world in the period leading up to World War I. It draws on evidence from previously private papers to offer an account of the methods Disraeli used to establish his ascendency over British foreign policies.

About the Author:

John Charmley is a British diplomatic historian and a professor of modern history at the University of East Anglia, where he is head of the school of history. He is the author of eight books, five of which are being reissued in Faber Finds. He is perhaps most famous for his revisionist interpretation of British foreign policy in the mid-twentieth century, dealing with subjects like Appeasement and the Second World War with a degree of iconoclasm.
