D C Watt Collection

"Donald Cameron Watt was a lecturer in International History at the University of London and later the LSE. He has also worked as the Official Historian to the Cabinet Office and has been the author, editor or co-editor of many books including Survey of International Affairs, Contemporary History in Europe, Current British Foreign Policy and Succeeding John Bull: America in Britain’s place. He has also been on the editorial board of many journals within his field."

The D.C. Watt Collection is housed on the first floor of the Library. It was originally acquired as a donation from D.C. Watt himself, by the Brunel Centre for Intelligence and Security Studies for use on the MA Intelligence and Security Studies course. It was donated to the Library in summer 2008.

Although the focus is on intelligence, it is likely to appeal to students on any courses within the broad fields of politics, international relations and history. The collection consists mainly of books, but also includes several journal runs: Intelligence and National Security, Jane’s Intelligence Review and Cold War History. It is freely accessible and all the books can be borrowed by the University’s students and staff.
