H&P historians reflect on the process of historical research and writing, what they discovered and the relevance of their findings for policy - whether at international, national or local levels.
Encouraged by students seeking alternatives to traditional social history, Matthew Hilton and colleagues charted the growth and ascendency of NGOs, their influence, impact - and limitations. By examining three key civil society concerns - environmentalism, humanitarian aid and development, and homelessness - the authors consider how NGOs and people's marginalisation from traditional politics has changed the ways in which 21st century Britons engage with the world.
New technologies of civic identity registration are a major global policy innovation. Keith Breckenridge and Simon Szreter, H&P Managing Editor, introduce a volume of new findings on the little-known comparative world history since the ancient world- both East and West- of these official and legal recognition systems; and discuss some of the policy implications from this diversity of original historical research.
Martin Johnes discusses how he approached the history of Wales since 1939, studying it as both a 'complex and contradictory' nation in its own right, and also as a witness and participant to the events and changes that shaped the UK and the wider world in the twentieth century.
