About

As Honorary Professor of Contemporary British History at the University of Bristol I’m an expert on the political history of contemporary Britain whose particular focus is economic policy, UK public administration and government; and the history of the country’s two main political parties.

I’m currently bringing one project to a close – Volume 2 of the Official History of the Civil Service (to be published in 2020) – and continuing another which explores the history relationship between Thatcherism and neoliberalism via a case study of policy implementation in pensions.

You can find out more about my research interests, projects and publications on my page on ‘Explore Bristol Research‘.
