Stephen Tansey

The principal author of Politics: the Basics and Business, IT and Society is now retired and resident in Poole, Dorset, England. I am on the left in photo! For most of my academic career I taught Politics at Bournemouth University and its predecessors - Bournemouth College of Technology, Dorset Institute of Higher Education and Bournemouth Polytechnic. Before that I lectured at the University of Ife, Nigeria - now known as Obafemi Awolowo University - for three years.


As well as teaching in Nigeria and at Bournemouth University, I have also taught for the Open University, the WEA, Exeter University and for the University of the Third Age on a part-time basis.
