The rise and fall of the British empire; war and society in the modern world; the First World War; the history of terrorism and society; Genocide and ethnic cleansing.
I am an imperial and military historian. My research and publications centre on British imperialism, colonialism and decolonisation in Cyprus, minorities of Cyprus, the Cyprus 'problem', British and French imperial and military policies in the eastern Mediterranean during and immediately after the Great War, the Armenian Genocide and the Armenian Legion (Legion d'Orient). My focus ranges from understanding European imperialism, and military and strategic policies, to socio-economic, political and cultural change in the eastern Mediterranean.
I am currently working on a monograph on the Cypriot Mule Corps (Macedonian Mule Corps), 1916-1920. Forthcoming in 2013 is the co-edited volume: The Archbishops of Cyprus in the Modern Age: The Changing Role of the Archbishop-Ethnarch, their Identities and Politics. I also have articles forthcoming in the journals Accounting History and Historical Research.
