About me

I”m the author, so far, of two books. Hitler’s Bureaucrats: The Nazi Security Police and the Banality of Evil (Continuum Collection), and Right to Exist: A Moral Defense of Israel’s Wars. For a while I used to blog, at A historian by training, I live in Jerusalem.

The purpose of this blog is to talk to people as I write a book about Jerusalem. As I read, talk to local people, and generally look around, I expect to present diverse things here, and see what people think about them. University professors use their students as sounding boards for emerging ideas which they then drop, or publish, as it may be; I’m wondering if the same can be done online. This site will be the place to find out.

    Sir — To your knowledge, has anyone written extensively on “Operation Chaos,” the British campaign to frustrate the creation of a Jewish state during the last months of the mandate?

    And what is your reaction to those who claim that the Siege of Jerusalem never happened, that it was just a series of battles during which Jews expelled Arabs from their homes?

    I looked at your book , “Right to Exist”

    It was good reading. Thanks for the effort. And thanks for giving your life to the Jewish People

    Sir — I bought “Right to Exist” and read it thoroughly. I am also researching the history of Jerusalem. May I please ask you a few questions?
