Liberal Wars: Anglo-American strategy, ideology and practice (Routledge), edited by Alan Cromartie at the University of Reading, has just been published (click title for more info). My chapter considers the similarities between the ways liberal states and non-liberal states have ideologically justified violence against civilians, focusing particularly on British and American aerial bombing in World War II and the post-war era. Other contributors include Richard Overy, Lawrence Freedman, Frank G. Hoffman, Owen Thomas, Patrick Porter and Allan Silver.
I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a new five-year Departmental Lectureship in International Relations in the Department of Politics and International Relations (and also attached to New College) at the University of Oxford. As part of the post I will continue lecturing on the IR Core paper and tutoring at New College, Oxford. I will now also lecture on the other IR undergraduate papers, and help teach the MPhil in International Relations graduate course. I will take up the post on 1st September 2015.
