To Whom It May Concern,
Dr. Norman Berdichevsky has worked for New English Review since the spring of
2006 and now holds the title of contributing editor. His work has been exemplary
and has never missed a deadline. He is extremely knowledgeable about a wide
range of topics including contemporary politics, history (specializing in the Middle
East, Spain, Denmark and America), languages (Hebrew, Danish, Spanish and even
Esperanto), culture and geography (especially concerning the history of national
boundaries) and has provided keen insight into ideological history and conflict. He
is well-travelled and brings first-hand understanding to Spanish, Danish, Israeli and
American culture and political sensibilities. He always handles difficult issues with
a sensitivity and nuance not often found in today’s over-wrought political climate.

Dr. Berdichevsky’s work always brings out the “telling detail” which captures the
imagination and in this regard I would venture to guess he is a very good teacher in
the classroom. He has presented papers at two of our conferences and in both cases
impressed both his colleagues and fellow academics with his detailed knowledge
and presentation skills. He is a very dynamic public speaker.
I would not hesitate to recommend him for any academic or professional position.
Sincerely yours,
Rebecca Bynum, Publisher and Managing Editor

The Danish-German Border Dispute, 1815-2001: Aspects of Cultural and Demographic Politics

Norman Berdichevsky

Considered one of the most difficult border questions in 19th century European history, the short 40 mile boundary between Denmark and Germany rose to prominence again after both world wars. The resolution of the border issue was accomplished without a boundary change by guaranteeing full minority rights. From being a Danish ''irredenta'', Schleswig has been transformed into a ''heimat'' commo... read more
