Toby Paterson: My main area of interests are 6th/5th Century Greek history and the works of Herodotus and Thucydides. I also enjoy reading about 20th Century European and Middle Eastern history. Recently, I have begun looking into how the study of history informs the worldview of ideology; particularly by the anti-historical writing of the philosopher Leo Strauss and his connection to the Neoconservative movement.
