About the Author

Tom Buchanan was born in London in 1960. He graduated from Wadham College Oxford with a first-class degree in Modern History in 1982, and went on to complete his DPhil at St Antony's college in 1987. He is a leading expert on Britain's involvement in the Spanish Civil War, and has written three books and numerous articles on this subject. He was appointed to his current post at OUDCE in 1990, and is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He began to research Anglo-Chinese relations in the mid-1990s.


A solid and interesting book. * Duncan Bowie, Chartist *
This is, in short, an excellent book. It breaks new ground and should be read by all historians of the British Left, and it also has a lot to say to specialists in the history of modern China. It represents scholarship of the highest caliber. * Andrew Thorpe, Journal of British Studies *
[Buchanan] has performed an essential task in mapping out a field of study into which both he and other scholars will doubtless venture further. * Kevin Morgan, English Historical Review *
It is very much to Buchanan's credit that such colourful personalities should be woven into a coherent narrative based on extensive archival reading. * T.H. Barrett, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies *
