Call in to speak with the host
Roger N. Buckley is Professor of History and the founding director of the Asian American Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut, at its main campus at Storrs. He was born in New York City to immigrant parents from the Caribbean. He earned a Ph.D. in British Empire History from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
He began his professional career exploring the question of war and society in the British colonial empire of the 19th century. That work has involved extensive archival research. For example, the archival material for his major book, The British Army in the West Indies, was mined in thirty-nine different public archives spread over ten countries in North America, Europe and the Caribbean.
His writing has entered a new phase in recent years. In an effort to bring his work to a larger more general audience, he has turned his attention to literary historical fiction and popular fiction. These works (which also include motion picture screen plays and eposodic drama treatments for television) are all informed by his academic research.
