Kevin Ruane is Professor of Modern History at Canterbury Christ Church University. He has written and published widely on many aspects of postwar international history, including books on the Vietnam War, Anglo-American Relations, and European unity. His most recent book, published by Bloomsbury in 2016, is Churchill and the Bomb in War and Peace, and he is presently completing – with co-author Professor Matthew Jones of the LSE – a study of Anthony Eden and the settlement of the French war in Indochina in 1954. Beyond this, his next project is a book on the personal and political relationship between Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden, from the 1930s to the 1950s, a study which will be aided, and enhanced, by his by-fellowship at the Churchill Archives Centre, Churchill College.
