Richard Toye Fellow of RHistS is a Professor in the Department of History and Head of History at the University of Exeter. He was previously a Fellow and Director of Studies for History at Homerton College, University of Cambridge, from 2002 to 2007, and before that he taught at University of Manchester from 2000.
His book Lloyd George and Churchill: Rivals for Greatness was the winner of the Times Higher Young Academic Author of the Year Award in 2007. One of the judges, June Purvis, professor of women's and gender history at Portsmouth University, said: "This is an extremely readable, lively book that explores the complex personal and political relationship between two great male politicians who helped to shape 20th-century Britain. The changing shades and hues of their relationship are documented in fascinating detail." It received widespread critical acclaim from a number of newspaper reviews for its "nuanced" approach. He has written extensively on Winston Churchill: his book Churchill's Empire: The World that Made Him and the World He Made was critically acclaimed. His most recent book is The Roar of the Lion: The Untold Story of Churchill's World War II Speeches. Toye has also written on Rhetoric. In late 2018 he appeared in the documentary Churchill's mistress discussing the fate of Dora, Lady Castlerosse broadcast on Yesterday (TV channel). At Exeter he specialises in teaching and researching Churchill and all aspects of party politics during the period of the Third British Empire. Commensurate with his role as a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society he was one of the signatories to a letter that strongly defended the Historical Association: government attempts to depoliticise the teaching profession have been largely unsuccessful.
