Welcome to my website. I’m Dr Nigel Fletcher, a political historian in every sense of the phrase. I teach politics and contemporary history at university level, and am also an experienced political practitioner.

I have worked for senior politicians, been a policy adviser, and have served in elected office myself. This experience helps me to bring a degree of practical knowledge to my work as a researcher and writer. I write widely on UK politics and political history, with published books, articles in UK national newspapers and appearances on broadcast news and current affairs programmes.

On this site you can find details of my experience and links to some of my writing and other work.
