After studying in Christchurch (New Zealand) and in England, I came to the University of Botswana in 1993 and taught there 1993–1997 and 1999–2021. (I remain affiliated to the University's History Department.) During 1998–99 I taught at the University of Malawi (Chancellor College, Zomba). I have taught a number of courses especially in the areas of European history, and research methods and the philosophy of history, but also a range of other topics including African history.

My first published work was on New Zealand foreign policy (New Zealand's Moral Foreign Policy 1935 - 1939, N.Z. Institute of International Affairs, 1988), but I have subsequently researched mainly in British political and church history, Southern African history, and philosophy of history.
