Summary/Abstract: British statesman Benjamin Disraeli has left a deep mark in his country's history as a two-time prime minister, an ideologist of modern conservatism and a popular novelist. At the height of his power, however, he also decisively interfered with the history of the Balkan Peninsula. This book explores the key influences that, in the consciousness of the future British prime minister, from the time of his early youth, shaped the understandings that would guide him in those fateful days, between 1875 and 1878. The biographical approach intersects with the history of ideas, and then, in analyzing Disraeli's role in the Great Eastern Crisis, the biography is expanded with a history of diplomacy and international relations. The author recounts a complete reconstruction of Disraeli's perceptions of the Eastern Question and his policies in the Great Eastern Crisis on the basis of a cross-section of diverse source material collected in British archives and libraries, from his private correspondence and novels, through minutes of parliamentary debates and daily press, to confidential government documents .
