Martin Ceadel is Professor of Politics at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of New College, where he has taught since 1979. His academic interests straddle British politics and international relations. He has been described (in the journal Quaker History) as 'the pre-eminent historian of British peace movements'. His most recent book, Semi-detached Idealists: The British Peace Movement and International Relations, 1854-1945 (OUP, 2000), was (according to the journal Political Studies) 'about as good as the academy gets'.
Ceadel expertly and exhaustively delineates the various strands of
Angell's thought, correcting many of the previous misconceptions
... [this] will surely become the standard work by which all future
examinations of Angell's life and thought will be judged. * James
Kitchen, English Historical Review *
This admirable biography has given us the fullest picture we have had of this extraordinary man and probably the fullest we shall ever have. * Contemporary Review *
