Historia biográfica

Alan James was a research professor of international relations at Keele University, UK and is a published author on peacekeeping. Born in 1933 in Newport, Monmouthshire, South Wales, he was educated in London. He graduated with a B.Sc in Economics, majoring in International Relations, from the London School of Economics with first class honors in 1954. James was a Professor of International Relations at Keele University in Keele, Staffordshire, England from 1974 to 1990 and a Research Professor from 1990 to 1998. As a young university professor, James became interested in the politics of international organizations and thus, in peacekeeping. After his first book in 1969, The Politics of Peacekeeping, his interest in peacekeeping was maintained which led to future writings. He has also held the positions of Rockefeller Research Fellow at Columbia University in New York, Visiting Professor at the University of Ife, in Nigeria, and at Jawaharal Nehru University in New Delhi. A former Chairman of the British International Studies Association, James has also been the Chair of the International Law Section of the (US - based) International Studies Association and guest Professor at Japan's National Institute for Defense Studies. He is a published author having written numerous journal articles, book chapters, newspaper articles, and book reviews. James' books include The Politics of Peacekeeping (1969), Sovereign Statehood: The Basis of International Society (1986), Peacekeeping in International Politics (1990) and Britain and The Congo Crisis, 1960-1963 (1996). Books edited by James include The Basis of International Order (1973), States in a Changing World (1993), A Dictionary of Diplomacy (with G.R. Berridge in 2001), and Keeping the Peace in the Cyprus Crisis of 1963-1964 (2002). In connection with his research, James has also paid field visits to ten peacekeeping operations. James married Val Hancox in 1956 and had six children. He remarried in 1981 to Professor Lorna Lloyd and they currently reside in Congleton, Cheshire, England.
