I am an international political sociologist. My primary research interests lie with the social sources of state action in international politics, with an empirical focus on the United Kingdom, the US, and the European Union. I am also interested in theory - both sociological and international.

My book, Britain and World Power Since 1945: Constructing a Nation's Role in International Politics, has just been published by the University of Michigan Press.
