David Landau is something of a rarity in Israel: on the left politically, on the right religiously he makes for unfailingly lively, original and thought-provoking debate.
His long and celebrated career in journalism – first as diplomatic correspondent for the Jerusalem Post, then as editor-in-chief of the influential Haaretz and today with The Economist – gives him authoritative insight into Israel’s predicament.
A frequent guest commentator for the BBC and American networks, he is also an acclaimed author. His 1993 book, Piety and Power, painted an intimate portrayal of the world of Jewish fundamentalism and Ben Gurion - A Political Biography: Shimon Peres in Conversation with David Landau was recently published.
An Orthodox Jew, Landau emigrated from London to Israel, where he studied in yeshivas before embarking on a career in journalism. This is his first visit to Australia, a unique opportunity to hear an independent voice reflect on a dramatic period of upheaval in Israel and the Middle East.
