From his earliest lucid moments, Roger Hudson was quite clearly infected with the bacillus of history. After Cambridge and a spell in a publishing house, publishing history, he has researched for, edited or otherwise worked with many historians on their books. These include, David Newsome's books on Victorian England, Charles Allen's on nineteenth-century India, Adam Zamoyski's on Poland, Jonathan Spence's on China, Philip Mansel's on Constantinople and Paris, James Buchan's on 18th-century Edinburgh, Martin Gilbert's on Jewish history, Alan Palmer's on the Napoleonic period, Tom Pocock's on Nelson's navy, and Michael Hickey's on Gallipoli and the Korean War. He has also edited biographies of many historical figures. He has also compiled a series of books, largely on history, for the Folio Society: THE GRAND QUARREL: the English Civil War through women's eyes; THE GRAND TOUR; NELSON & EMMA; WILLIAM RUSSELL; SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OF THE TIMES - the war reporting of William Howard Russell; LONDON: PORTRAIT OF A CITY; THE JUBILEE YEARS 1887; THE RAJ - an eyewitness history of British India.
