About David Coates
Since 1999 I have held the Worrell chair in Anglo-American Studies at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. Before that I directed the International Centre for Labour Studies, and was Professor of Government, at the University of Manchester in the UK. I live on the outskirts of Winston-Salem with my wife and teenage son.
