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.

Ben-Yehuda’s vision of a modern Hebrew eventually came to animate a large part of the Jewish world, and gave new confidence and pride to Jewish youth during the most difficult period of modern history, infusing Zionism with a dynamic cultural content. This book examines the many changes that occurred in the transition to Modern Hebrew, acquainting new students of the language with its role as ... read more
Denmark, the southernmost Nordic nation, remains little-known to many citizens of the world.

The land of the Danes has much to offer visitors, and this guide to Danish society, culture, and history offers an inside look, with details on Denmark’s substan... read more

The purpose of this book is threefold: 1.

To demonstrate tha... read more

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
