My research concerns Historical Sociology and International Relations, Marxism and International Political Economy, and revolutionary politics.
I have outside interests in Japanese modern history and contemporary politics, and critical war studies, especially drone warfare and imperialism. I am one of the co-ordinators of a British Academy funded research network entitled ‘Emancipatory Politics in the Arab World in an Era of Revolutions’.
