 About the Book 

In this account Rchard Shannon succeeds in writing the first part of the very strange history of the Conservative Party. He explains clearly the story of how, by a curious combination of design and accident, the Conservative Party moved towards the successful political party it has become by the 1990s. In particular he examines Disraelis vain attempt to preserve the aristocratic politics in an age of popular franchise.
