Public Activities

Welcome to my site.  I am a historian working as an author and an independent television producer.   I have specialised in work on radical characters from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and 'the decadence' of the 1890s.  My books include biographies of Tony Benn, of Gandhi, Emmeline Pankhurst and of the Nehru dynasty. My most recent major book is Women and the Vote: A World History (OUP 2014). Literary work includes a biography of Kipling, Madder Music, Stronger Wine; The Life of Ernest Dowson (2000) and Hideous Absinthe: History of the Devil in  a Bottle (2004).   My television work includes biographies of Kitchener, Bill and Hillary Clinton and of characters from London's East End. I live in London and on the Greek island of Leros with fellow historian, Julie Peakman. This is a link to Julie's Web Site
