Professor of Modern History, University of Exeter

I am an historian of Britain in in its global and imperial context in the period from the late Nineteenth Century to the present day. I am particularly interested in the rhetorical dimensions of politics and economics. I am the author of three books on Winston Churchill. Prior to moving to Exeter in 2007 I taught at the univeristies of Manchester and Cambridge.
