As well as being an academic across three continents, he has been a TV journalist, a Justice of the Peace, and elected Mayor in the UK. He is father to three wonderful sons, and in his spare time, he enjoys listening to the BBC World Service, solving The Guardian cryptic crossword, reading Modern European detective fiction, and following the trials and tribulations of Tranmere Rovers Football Club.
