Benny Morris, PhD
Professor, Ben-Gurion University in the Negev

Benny Morris is the leading figure among Israel’s “New Historians,” who over the past two decades have reshaped an understanding of the Israel-Arab conflict. His books include Righteous Victims: A History of the Zionist-Arab Conflict, 1881-2001; Israel’s Border Wars, 1949-1956; and The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem Revisited.

The son of Jewish immigrants from Great Britain, Morris was born in Kibbutz Ein HaHoresh. His father, Ya'akov Morris, a diplomat who at one time was the Israeli ambassador to New Zealand, and other times at the Consulates in India and New York, came to the Middle East from Ireland in 1947. Benny Morris received his doctorate from the University of Cambridge. For a number of years, he was the diplomatic correspondent of the Jerusalem Post.
