Adrian Williamson studied History and Law at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and was called to the Bar in 1983. He has practised at Keating Chambers since 1989, taking silk in 2002. The papers he has delivered include "'The Conservatives and 'Concerted Action': Economic Policy making 1975-1979'" in 2010 and "''Reversing the Trend': Keith Joseph and the remaking of British Conservatism, 1974-1979'" in 2011.Review:
“This wide-ranging coverage of Conservative economic policymaking is based on a broad and impressive array of primary sources. ... This book is an essential contribution to the incipient historical debate on the Thatcher governments, which challenges the assumption that Thatcherism existed as a novel and coherent political-economic project prior to 1979. Furthermore, it provides a solid foundation for future research into the development of the Conservative party’s radical approach to economic policymaking in government during the 1980s.” (Aled Davies, Twentieth Century British History, Vol. 28 (1), March, 2017)
