About the Author

A native Australian, Allan Wood was graduated from Sydney University, where his father was Professor of History. He went on to Oxford to study philosophy, was the first Australian to become President of the Union, and later returned to Oxford for a period during the course of his work on Bertrand Russell. The fruits of his studies and his close acquaintanceship with Russell are the present biography and a forthcoming book, Russell's Philosophy: A Study of Its Development.

Mr. Wood did not, however, confine his interests to philosophy. He first became well known to the English public as a correspondent with the airborne forces at Arnhem during World War II. His varied books include Islands in Danger (with Mary Wood), the history of the German occupation of the Channel Islands. As this book was going to press, word arrived from London of the death there of Mr. Wood at the age of 43.
