Miller, whose published works include The Much Too Promised Land: America’s Elusive Search for Arab-Israeli Peace (2008), served at the U.S. Department of State as an advisor to six secretaries of state, including managing Arab-Israeli negotiations in the Clinton Administration. Rabinovich, Israel’s ambassador to the United States from 1993 to 1996 and chief negotiator with Syria under Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, has authored The Road Not Taken: Early Arab-Israeli Negotiations and The Brink of Peace: Israel and Syria, among other works.

Editor’s Note:

The Taub Center was established with a gift from the Henry and Marilyn Taub Foundation. The gift supports an endowed professorship and two graduate fellowships in Israel Studies, and funds lectures, seminars, scholarly colloquia at the Center, and other special programs for students, faculty, and the community. In addition to offering its own programming, the Taub Center works closely with NYU’s departments to create cross-disciplinary programming, serving to broaden NYU’s offerings in Judaic and Middle Eastern studies.
