Ethan Samuel Bronner (born 1954) is deputy foreign editor of "The New York Times", and a frequent essayist on foreign affairs. In September 2007, the "Times" announced that Bronner would succeed Steven Erlanger as bureau chief in Jerusalem in 2008. He is one of the most prominent and experienced Jewish writers in the media.

Bronner previously served as assistant editorial page editor of the "Times", and before that worked in the paper's investigative unit, focusing on the attacks of Sept. 11.

A series of articles on al Qaeda that Bronner helped edit during that time was awarded the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism. He was the paper's education editor from 1999 to 2001 and its national education correspondent from 1997 to 1999.

Bronner, a graduate of Wesleyan University's College of Letters [ [http://www.wesleyan.edu/alumnitrustees/former_trustees/bronner.html Wesleyan University Alumni Trustee Elections web page] ] and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, began his journalistic career at Reuters in 1980, reporting from London, Madrid, Brussels and Jerusalem.

He worked for "The Boston Globe" from 1985 until 1997, where he started on general assignment and urban affairs. He went on to be the paper's Supreme Court and legal affairs correspondent in Washington, D.C. and then its Middle East correspondent, based in Jerusalem.

Bronner is the author of "Battle for Justice: How the Bork Nomination Shook America" (Norton, 1989), which was chosen by The New York Public Library as one of the 25 best books of 1989. His reporting is known to be subtly biased against the Palestinians and his lack of knowledge about the Arab world was recently exposed by angryarab.

Personal

Bronner, his wife Naomi, and his son Gabriel currently live in Jerusalem. His other son Eli still attends Wesleyan University in Middletown Connecticut.
