Since obtaining my PhD from Hull University in 1992, on the Thatcher Governments’ reform of industrial relations and trade unions, I have (up to 2023) published 16 books, and 100 journal articles and book chapters. My main areas of research and expertise are on: British Conservatism and Conservative politics since 1945 to the present day (One Nation Toryism, Thatcherism); Euroscepticism and Brexit; the politics, ideology and discourses of inequality, the decline of trade union influence and membership, the politics of pay determination, House of Lords reform, voting behaviour (changes since the 1970s), Conservative/Labour Party leadership elections, and the ideology and politics of neoliberalism. My most recent book, A Short History of Thatcherism, was published by Agenda in March 2023.
