Conrad Russell, 67, a liberal historian and politician, died Thursday in London after a long illness.

Mr. Russell - son of the philosopher Bertrand Russell - represented the Liberal Democrats party in Parliament.

Conrad Russell, who had been estranged from his father for many years, gained a reputation as a defender of the disenfranchised. In 1997, he admonished Prime Minister Tony Blair for saying he never gave money to beggars.

Mr. Russell also taught history at Yale University and the University of London, specializing in the 17th century and the English Civil War. He wrote several books, including The Causes of the English Civil War and The Fall of the British Monarchies.
