Robin Harris was born in 1952 in Falmouth, Cornwall, England. He later went to Oxford where he received a first-class degree in modern history, won the university Gibbs Prize, and gained a doctorate. Mr. Harris is an author and journalist, vice-president of the Centre for the Renewal of Culture (Centar za obnovu kulture) in Zagreb. He lives in and is a citizen of Croatia. For most of his professional life he worked for either the British Conservative Party or the Conservative Government of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. From 1978, he was a member of the Conservative Research Department, of which he later became director. During the 1980s, he was a special adviser at the Treasury, then at the Home Office, and finally a member of the Prime Minister’s Downing Street Policy Unit. He left Government at the same time as Mrs Thatcher, and then proceeded to help her with advice, speeches, and several books, including the two volumes of her memoirs. He was one of her closest advisers for many years and remained a personal friend until her death.
He was awarded a CBE for political and public service in 1988 and the Order of the Croatian Morning Star in 2008. Mr. Harris has written regularly in newspapers and journals such as the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail, The (London) Times, the Spectator, Standpoint, the Catholic Herald and National Review. He is the author of several books of history and biography. He wrote a history of the city state of Dubrovnik. He has written a biography of the French nineteenth century statesman, Talleyrand.
In 2011 he published The Conservatives – A History. In 2013 he wrote Not for Turning – The Complete Life of Margaret Thatcher. The book was a Sunday Times Bestseller and was described by the Daily Mail as “the political biography of the decade”. It provides a candid insight into Margaret Thatcher’s personality, ideas, and achievements, heavily based on personal experience.
In 2016 he wrote Stepinac – His Life and Times, a study of the controversial War-time Archbishop of Zagreb. He is currently writing a history of modern Croatia, due to be published in 2022.
