My dad died suddenly on 3 April, at the age of 71. He was a Professor of Government at the University of Manchester, and later a part-time professor in the Business School. He was a leading authority on British government, public policy and political economy.
Since his death we’ve been very touched to receive so many emails and other messages, from both academics and non-academics, paying tribute to my dad not just as a scholar and teacher but as a person. So we thought it might be nice to have a web page, like this one, where anyone could post comments.
If you’d like to leave a message about my dad, just write it in ‘leave a reply’ at the bottom of the page. (According to the site settings I may have to approve it before it’s published, but I will do this as soon as I can and won’t edit the entries.)
If you have a longish tribute, it might be better to cut and paste it in from elsewhere. (To paste text in to the box, press Ctrl + v, or Cmd + v if you’re using a Mac.) Or, if you prefer, you can email me your tribute (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll put it up for you.
