Leaders, Secrets, and Politics in Israel: A Conversation with Journalist and Historian Tom Segev

Friday, October 25, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for a conversation on Leaders, Secrets and Politics in Israel with Journalist and Historian Tom Segev. (Open to students, faculty and UC Berkeley staff).

Unlike many writers who have accepted the official historical record as the foundation for their work, Segev’s work often questions some of the leading assumptions of Israel’s official history. He has often drawn on untapped archives, personal diaries, and declassified documents to explore or deconstruct the complexities of Israeli internal and international politics. Join us for a conversation with Segev as he explores Israel’s leaders, shares uncovered secrets, and explores the history of Israeli politics.

Tom Segev is among Israel’s leading journalists and historians. In addition to a weekly column in Haaretz, Segev’s works include The Seventh Million; 1967: Israel, the War, and the Year That Transformed the Middle East; Simon Wiesenthal; and One Palestine, Complete (chosen one of ten best books of 2000 by The New York Times). Segev holds a BA from Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a PhD in history from Boston University.

Lunch will be provided.
