Nicholas Atkin

Nick Atkin was appointed Lecturer in History at the University of Reading (UK) in 1986, having previously taught at the University of London. He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2000 and the personal title of Professor of Modern European History was conferred on him in 2004. He died on 22 October 2009 at the age of 49.[1]

Atkin had two main areas of research: France and French issues in the twentieth century; and French and European French Fifth Republic in 2004. As well as these single authored works, he was joint author of Priests Prelates and People: A history of European Catholicism (2003), as well as editor of a number of books including The Right in France (1998), Catholicism in Britain and France (1995) and Religion Society and Politics in France (1991). He later edited a book on Daily Lives of Civilians in Wartime Twentieth Century Europe. At the time of his death, he was working on a major study of Franco-British tourism in the nineteenth and twentieth century, and on a Dictionary of Modern European History.[2]
