Author Biography - Graham Macklin
Dr Graham Macklin is manager of the research service at the National Archives. His main academic interests were in British fascism, post-war fascism, and right-wing terrorism. He is working on a biography of the British fascist A K Chesterton, which entailed looking closely at areas of Chamberlain's politics which are often ignored, such as the close relationship in those years between Conservative Central Office and the fascist fringe magazine Truth.
