Flavin, Michael
December 2004 marked the bicentenary of Benjamin Disraeli's birth. "The Novel as Political Discourse" examines Disraeli's novels in order to construct a portrait of the man, his context and enduring reputation. Disraeli's literary career ran from 1826 to 1880. Within this time he became an M.P., Leader of the Opposition, Chancellor and Prime Minister. His novels can be read as the breeding ground for his ideas, gestated away from the pressure cooker of Parliament. From his first novel, "Vivian Grey", about the formation of a new political party, through to the overtly political 'Young England' trilogy (named after a faction of the Conservative Party with which Disraeli was aligned) and beyond, Disraeli's novels expose the development of his thinking while also reflecting the anxieties of his age. This book will appeal to those fascinated by Disraeli and Conservatism and anyone interested in the development of Britain in the Victorian era. The book enhances our understanding of this charismatic figure who continues to cast a formidable shadow across the nation's politics and culture. 221pp.

Edited By Jokic, Aleksandar
This work contains contributions by leading philosophers on the vast influence of Adolf Grunbaum on the philosophies of religion and science. A reprint of Grunbaum's "The Poverty of Theistic Cosmology" enriches the book. A highlight of this volume is an extended "Autobiographical-Philosophical Narrative" in which Grunbaum traces his intellectual journey, beginning with a poignant account of his early experiences with anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany and his intellectual queries about religious belief, continuing through the major milestones of his career, and concluding with his current interests. 476pp.
