Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0582507138, Hardcover)After his 1867 reform act has established a 'democratic' franchise in the boroughs, Disraeli's attempts to reconcile the elements of what became known as Tory Democracy were judged by most contemporary Conservatives as at best risky and at worst a betrayal - yet the party triumphantly, if painfully, adapted. This long-awaited contribution to the histroy shows us, behind Disraeli's vain attempt to preserve aristiocratic politics in an age of popular franchise, the formative beginnings of suburban Conservatism that was to make the fortune of the party.
