The Hebrew Republic: Israel’s Return to History
Chair: Ned Temko
In his collection of essays Colin Shindler presents his very personal take on Israel, based on over 50 years of writing on the subject for The New York Times, The Jerusalem Post and the Guardian. This vivid and engaging ‘history’ speaks of Shindler’s deep understanding of the problems of the region.
Colin Shindler was the first professor of Israel Studies in the UK and is a Professor Emeritus at SOAS. He is the author of many books including The Rise of the Israeli Right, winner of The Washington Institute Book Prize 2016
Ned Temko was editor of the JC from 1990-2005 before leaving to become chief political correspondent of the Observer. Before that he was foreign correspondent for Christian Scientist Monitor.
