Tony McFarlane, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Warwick.  His research has focused chiefly on the histories of Colombia and Ecuador, seen within the context of the history of the Spanish world in the period c.1700-c.1850. It includes study of Colombia's economic history during and after the colonial period, the history of rebellions, slavery and crime in the late colonial period, and the movements for independence in the early nineteenth century. He has also been interested in the comparative history of late colonial Spanish America, and in British American colonial history.  He has published extensively on these subjects, including his latest book War and Independence in Spanish America (2013).
