About meI started out as an historian with a PhD in late nineteenth century British history but have since worked in the area of social policy. I do occasional teaching in this subject.

About my libraryMy library had to be re-created from the time I left Britain and sold all the books I'd been collecting up to that point - including all my undergraduate books. I sometimes try and replace them.
The most interesting works are those I collected for my thesis and are by Edward Carpenter, William Morris and the early socialists.

I am one of those increasingly rare people on LibraryThing who actually own all the books listed here.
