Dr Robert Ford is a professor of political science at The University of Manchester. His areas of expertise comprise elections, public opinion, immigration, and the rise of the radical right. He is the author of Revolt on the Right which charts the rise of UKIP and was widely praised by politicians and media commentators and was selected as Paddy Power Political Book of the Year (2015). He also co-edited Sex, lies and the ballot box, a widely praised collection of short essays about the curious, often contradictory, attitudes and behaviour of British voters. Both books were acclaimed for their ability to communicate complex political ideas in clear and compelling language to a wide audience.
