Michael Bentley (born 1948) is an English historian of British politics in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Boyd Hilton has called Bentley's Politics Without Democracy 1815–1914 "a wonderfully 'inside' account of life at the top", whilst K. Theodore Hoppen claims the book "provides an interesting (if allusive) study of attitudes".
Bentley is married to the historian Sarah Foot.
