Dr Halbert Jones is working with colleagues around the university to develop the College’s North American Studies Programme, which examines the continent, including Central America and the Caribbean, as a region, contributing to a deeper understanding of issues that transcend national boundaries in North America, of interrelationships between the region’s states and societies, and of its relationship with the rest of the world.

Dr Jones’s research interests include the history and politics of twentieth-century Mexico and the international relations of North America. His new book, “The War Has Brought Peace to Mexico: World War II and the Consolidation of the Post-Revolutionary State", highlights the importance of international conditions to the process of political consolidation that was under way in Mexico during the early 1940s.  He received his BA, MA, and PhD in history from Harvard University and was a Senior Fellow at Harvard’s David Rockefeller Centre for Latin American Studies. He has also served as an Historian in the Office of the Historian of the U.S. Department of State and as a Visiting Fellow at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México in Mexico City.
