Dr David Cowan, a History Fellow at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, has achieved a significant milestone in his academic career. His first book, “Politics of the Past: Inter-war Memories and the Making of British Popular Politics, 1939–2009,” which began as part of his PhD project completed in 2019, is now published by Cambridge University Press. Spanning eight years of research and writing, the book’s appearance on the shelves of the Cambridge University Press bookshop is a “big moment” for Cowan. Reflecting on this achievement, he notes, “It’s very nice seeing it come together but also very daunting having it out in the world: how will other academics react to it?”
