ABOUT THIS SITE
This site combines my blog, in which I write as a scholar about current issues and intellectual debates, with a guide to my academic books and articles – including many online chapters and papers. To find what you want, go to the links at the top of all the pages, which provide a guide to the main areas of my academic work, or to blog, which provides a guide to my posts on this site.
THE BLOG – COMMENTARY, BOOK REVIEWS AND NEWS OF PUBLICATIONS, LECTURES, ETC.
The blog side of this site combines short theoretical, analytical, policy-oriented and political comments, informed by a coherent understanding of international politics, war and genocide in the modern world, with my book reviews, updates on my academic publications, lectures and contributions to other websites. You’ll find much of my topical commentary on opendemocracy.net, but it’s all linked here.
I have also uploaded my online commentaries and book reviews from 1999-2008, so that dates of posting are in many cases not those of writing. To avoid confusion, I’ve archived all these pieces in the ‘category’ section by year (1999, 2000 etc.)
