Prof Jonathan Rose is the William R. Kenan Professor of History. He has held visiting appointments at the University of Cambridge and Princeton University and he reviews books for The Times Literary Supplement and the Daily Telegraph. His fields of study are British history, intellectual history and the history of the book. We mainly talk about his magnum opus, The Intellectual Life of the British Working Classes, which won the Jacques Barzun Prize in Cultural History, the Longman-History Today Historical Book of the Year Prize and the British Council Prize. In that book, Jonathan revealed that the British working classes were far more well read than had previously been thought.
