Success for Rob Ford’s latest books

(6 January 2015)

SoSS academic wins Political Studies Association Awards and two nominations for Political Book of the Year.

Dr Rob Ford, a senior Lecturer in Politics, has won the Political Studies Association’s 2014 Political Studies Communicator award 2014 for the work that he and his co-author Matthew Goodwin have done to communicate the challenge of the UK Independence Party to a wide audience.

The judges said the authors' approach to promoting their book, Revolt on the Right (Routledge 2014), was a ‘textbook example of how to shape and inform debate […] the exemplar of a pathway to impact’.

Revolt on the Right, along with Rob's other recent publication, Sex, lies and the ballot box are both nominated in the Paddy Power Political Book of the Year awards. They feature in two categories, Book of the Year and Practical Politics Book of the Year. The results will be released on 28 January.
