Hurd also shares with Disraeli a romantic fascination for the workings of politics and the conduct of foreign affairs, and, like Disraeli, has written cleverly about both.
Unlike Disraeli, however, Hurd was never an outsider to the British political elite; indeed, his background, education, and career molded him into an almost archetypal English parliamentary gentleman.
Born on March 8, 1930, in Marlborough, England, Hurd was the eldest son of Sir Anthony (later Baron) Hurd and his wife Stephanie.

As foreign secretary during the early 1990s, Hurd was closely bound up with the European Union's controversial decision to recognise the sovereignty of Croatia - an event which, in retrospect, many believe made war inevitable in Bosnia.
