Stephen Davies Joins Liberty and Power

Let's all type in a round of applause to the newest member of the L and P fraternity: Stephen Davies, a professor of history at Manchester University.

It has been my pleasure to work alongside Steve in several venues, most notably seminars sponsored by the Cato Institute and the Institute for Humane Studies. As a scholar, he is a renaissance man of the first rank. He is one of the knowledgable people I know, whether the question at hand concerns the Sung dynasty or the history of Middle Eastern religions. He has written extensively on the private provision of services in Britain such as police, fire protection, and welfare, British individualist feminism, and the development of markets in urban history.

His books include A Dictionary of Conservative and Libertarian Thought (with Nigel Ashford) and Empiricism and History (Theory and History)

Also wanted to add how much I enjoyed your essay, "The Private Provision of Police during the Eighteenth and Ninetheen Centuries" in The Voluntary City (Ann Arbor, U of Mich Press, 2002, pp. 151-181) from The Independent Institute. It was very insightful and clearly written by someone who is quite familiar with the issue.

Steve, I'm looking forward to reading your posts. The one and only time we met was at a libertarian weekend at the University of York, England, in, I think, 1990, and I still remember your wonderful lectures.
