Abstract

This thesis is concerned with two books of narrative history, The World That Never Was:
A True Story of Dreamers, Schemers, Anarchists and Secret Agents and Pompeii: The
Living City, both written by me during the 2000s, the latter co-authored with Ray
Laurence. Pompeii (2005) explores life in the Colonia Veneria Pompeiana, a provincial
Italian city, in the middle of the first century CE, during the period prior to the eruption
of Vesuvius in 69 CE. The World That Never Was (2009) offers an account of the
Anarchist movement and its complex relationship with the police and intelligence
services across an international diaspora during the late nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries, beginning with the Paris Commune of 1871.
