His early research concerned the history of economic thought, and his 2009 book on the lateVictorian political economist Alfred Marshall won the best monograph award of the European Society for the History of Economic Thought. For most of the last decade, however, he has been studying the impact of the discovery of prehistory on late 19th- and 20th-century historical thought. His ongoing work on Tolkien is an outgrowth of this wider research project. Cook is a co-founder of Rounded Globe, which publishes accessible scholarly essays. Merlin
