Gillian Peele specialises in comparative government, British and American politics. She has been teaching at Lady Margaret Hall Oxford since 1975. She teaches Introduction to Politics, Comparative Government, Modern British Government, and Government and Politics of the United States.
Miss Peele has her own website and a profile on the department of Politics and International Relations website.
Miss Peele's primary interests are in empirical politics and she has published in the field of British, American and comparative politics. In addition to her more specialist research interests, she has enjoyed writing and editing books which make political developments available to a broader audience. Such books include two works in the Developments series (Developments in British Politics and Developments in American Politics) as well as a text on British Government (Governing the UK ) and the Blackwells series on modern governments.
