About the Editor

ABOUT THE EDITOR

Jonathan Pearlman is the editor of The Jewish Quarterly. He is also editor of Australian Foreign Affairs and world editor of The Saturday Paper. He previously worked at The Sydney Morning Herald, covering foreign affairs and politics, and as a correspondent in the Middle East. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including The Diplomat, Good Weekend, Australian Book Review and The Jerusalem Report, and he has been a Walkley Award finalist and United Nations Media Award winner. He studied at the University of New South Wales and Oxford University.

Our aim is to feature great writers engaging with today’s world – the politics, the dilemmas, the culture – in ways that explore and expose the complexities and curiosities, rather than simplify them. Each issue will address diverse topics and will, I hope, include writing that is compelling, surprising, enriching and a pleasure to read.
