His numerous publications on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American politics, particularly on Congress and the District of Columbia, made a very significant contribution to the field.

An active participant in the research community of American history, Dr Harrison was a long-standing member of BAAS and was closely involved in the British American Nineteenth Century Historians' organization (BrANCH), organizing two major conferences on American history in 2000 and 2004.

A Must Read ! ! ! Nov 18, 2006
An excellent book that should be read by everyone 18 and over. I found the book very informative and inspirational but was not prepared for some parts which were shocking. This should not have surprised me though as this is life at the desperate level on a big city crisis hotline. A Fortune 500 senior executive, sitting at his desk with a gun in front of him ready to commit suicide, a gentleman with two doctorate degrees in charge of research at his company ready to turn on his car's ignition in his enclosed garage at home. This is life at its most traumatic told by callers as they seek help, as well as a compassionate and calming voice on the crisis hotline. The appendix at the end of the book lists all the crisis line telephone numbers throughout the USA and Canada and should be on everyone's reference shelf.
