Robert Gildea, Professor of Modern History at University of Oxford, has this comment about the movement to get the UK’s Foreign Office to release a massive archive of public documents in The Conversation, an independent source of news and views from the academic and research community.

  • Public interest demands the release of hidden colonial files, Robert Gildea, The Conversation (27 January 2014).
