"1874 That year was a climactic one for Disraeli, erstwhile dandy, occasional novelist, brilliant orator and shrewd tactician in Parliament for 37 years. Rising above his checkered background, he assumed the office of Prime Minister - -and promptly met the startling change in his countrymen's attitude toward him. Maurois describes the phenomenon: 'The adventurer, his genius tolerated by some, his authority contested by others, referred to as "Dizzy" with a familiarity sometimes affectionate, sometimes scornful, had now become an object of respect.
