Disraeli: The Romance of Politics, published by the University of Toronto Press

The Victorian Studies Centre, within our College of Arts, Humanities and Law, is hosting the book launch of Professor Robert O’Kell’s study of Benjamin Disraeli Disraeli: The Romance of Politics

The book tries to analyse the two faces of Disraeli - the prime minister and the author - and looks at how similar both those personas were.

As part of the Spring Seminar Series, Professor O’Kell will also give a talk titled ‘The Politics of Disraeli’s Novels’ to be followed by a response from Dr James Moore of our School of Historical Studies.

The book launch and talk will be held on Wednesday 20th February at 5:15pm in the Attenborough Film Theatre followed by a wine reception.

All are welcome - for more information, please contact Dr Richa Dwor on 0116 252 2533 or at: rgd5@leicester.ac.uk
