David Martin Jones

Associate Professor, School of Political Science and International Studies, The University of Queensland

David Martin Jones’ research on political theory has focused on two areas: the evolution of English political thinking on ideas of conscience and allegiance and somewhat differently the impact of traditional understandings of political obligation upon statecraft in East and Southeast Asia. In the context of English political thought his work resulted in a book Conscience and Allegiance in Seventeenth Century English Political Thought (University of Rochester 1999) which received positive reviews from leading scholars in the field in Political Studies, History Today, English Historical Review, Journal of Modern History and Albion. An essay on Sir Edward Coke and Allegiance appeared in History of Political Thought Journal 1987 and was subsequently reproduced in a Liberty Fund publication Law Liberty and Parliament ed Alan Behm 2004. In addition to publishing several academic pieces on terrorism in Southeast Asia in the highest quality venues, David Martin Jones has made a high profile contribution to public debate through pieces in The Australian Financial Review, The National Interest and The World Today.
