Anthony‚€™s research focuses on the Enlightenment and British culture in the age of revolutions. Author of John Jebb and the Enlightenment Origins of British Radicalism (2003), he is currently writing a book titled Britain and the Seventy Years War, 1745-1815: Enlightenment, Revolution and Empire for Palgrave Macmillan‚€™s British History in Perspective series. Researching various aspects of Unitarian Rational Dissent in eighteenth-century Britain, he is working with Martin Fitzpatrick at producing a published edition of the large correspondence c. 1750-1810 between the English Rational Dissenter Samuel Kenrick and Scottish clergyman James Wodrow housed in the Dr Williams Library, London.
