      Professor Ferguson has written a number of bestselling books on a range of topics; his works include Paper and Iron: Hamburg Business and German Politics in the Era of Inflation 1897-1927, Virtual History: Alternatives and Counterfactuals, The Pity of War: Explaining World War One, The World's Banker: The History of the House of Rothschild, and The Cash Nexus: Money and Power in the Modern World, 1700-2000. His most current work, Empire: The Rise and Demise of the British World Order and the Lessons for Global Power, was an instantaneous hit in both Britain and the U.S. In addition to his professorships and avid book-writing endeavors, Professor Ferguson recently wrote and presented a six-part history of the British empire for Channel 4, which was broadcast in the United Kingdom. He also contributes regularly as a writer and a reviewer to both the British and American presses. Professor Ferguson is widely acclaimed as a leading expert on contemporary politics in academic and non-academic circles. At the present time, he resides with his family in New York and Oxfordshire, England.
