My theoretical work is oriented around the relationship between history and theory, with a particular interest in global historical sociology. I apply this theoretical interest to the study of revolutions, particularly in two books: Negotiated Revolutions: The Czech Republic, South Africa and Chile (2005) and Anatomies of Revolution (2019).
I also apply my interest in history-theory to debates around global modernity, most notably in a book (co-authored with Barry Buzan) that charts the ways in which a range of important dynamics in contemporary international relations have their roots in the 19th century ‘global transformation’. Articles drawn from this project have been published in International Studies Quarterly, European Journal of International Relations and International Affairs.
