Brian Hodgkinson qualified as a Chartered Accountant, before reading Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Balliol College, Oxford. During a long teaching career at Sussex University, Dulwich College and St James Schools in London, he developed a strong and diverse interest in writing, which involved studying Sanskrit, Indian Philosophy and epic literature, as well as the continued pursuit of Economics and History.
In all of these he has sought to find the underlying laws that govern the development of both individuals and societies, following Pope’s famous principle ‘The proper study of mankind is man’.
Brian’s latest work is a 3 volume History book series which charts the advancement of civilisation from Ancient Egypt to the 20th Century through the study of great individuals or of ordinary people touched for a moment by a vision of greatness. The series can be ordered via Shepheard-Walwyn here. Each volume can also be ordered separately.
Brian has also published some of his books with Shepheard-Walwyn. Click on the cover images to view the book pages.
