CIC Principal contributes to the Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History

Chelsea Independent College is pleased to note the publication of the Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History, to which Principal Dr Martin Meenagh contributed well over a hundred entries.

The dictionary covers the main global events, personalities and themes from the eighteenth century to the present. Martin contributed to a broad range of sections including Asian and European politics, British and Commonwealth history, political biographies as well as Imperial history, with special thanks given to Martin by the editor for his ‘invaluable assistance in bringing the work to a conclusion’.

Martin is a keen historian. He read History at the University of Oxford, where he also completed his Doctorate researching the relationship between Ireland, America, and the Catholic Church in New York during the American civil war period. As an ‘academic’ barrister, he was also most interested in European and constitutional law, and property law.

Martin continues to promote humanities and social sciences at Chelsea, and will be putting a copy of the dictionary on the college reading lists.
