He has a special interest in political theory and was a contributor to both The Routledge Encyclopedia of Democratic Thought (London, Routledge, 2001), and The Routledge Encyclopedia of British Culture (London, Routledge, 2003). He is the author of Liberty after Liberalism (London, Macmillan, 2006), Civil Disobedience: (Un)Common Sense in Mass Democracies (London, Macmillan, 2009), and Secrets and Democracy: From Arcana Imperii to WikiLeaks (London, Macmillan, 2014).
