Bio

Kevin Ruane is Professor of Modern History at Canterbury Christ Church University. He has published widely on many aspects of modern international history, including the Cold War and the Anglo-American “special relationship.” His most recent book is Churchill and the Bomb (Bloomsbury, 2016). He is now working on another book–a fusion of history, literature and biography–entitled Graham Greene’s Vietnam War which amplifies the themes he outlined in “The Hidden History of Graham Greene’s Vietnam War: Fact, Fiction and The Quiet American” in the journal History (2012). The story of Greene’s real-life experiences in Indochina (involving espionage, opium, the CIA, exotic religious cults, the French secret service, a brutal war and an exotic location) is as compelling as anything in his fiction.
