About me:

My interest in the Russian revolution stems from a lifetime's involvement in the socialist and labour movements. I started travelling to Russia and Ukraine in 1990, and have written about them as a journalist as well as a historian. Since completing the PhD dissertation on which The Russian Revolution in Retreat was based, in 2007, I have worked as a Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.
