David Lockwood is a specialist in Soviet history and in the modern history and politics of India. He is especially interested in the role of the bourgeoisie in historical development. He combines this with work in the broad areas of the role of the state in economic development; the transition from state-controlled to market economies; and the effects of globalisation on national states.

He teaches Russian, Chinese and Indian history. His publications include a monograph on the bourgeois revolution in Russia and another on the evolution of the bourgeoisie in India, concentrating on its relationship with the state. Most recently he has published a book onthe period of Emergency Rule in India under Indira Gandhi, from 1975 to 1977. He is currently researching a book on India at war in 1942.
