A graduate of Wesleyan University’s College of Letters and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Bronner is a veteran of international reporting. He has been an overseas correspondent in London, Madrid and Brussels and was the New York Times’s deputy foreign editor from 2004 to 2008 and the Times’s bureau chief in Jerusalem between 2008 and 2012.

Bronner began his journalism career at Reuters in 1980, reporting from London, Madrid, Brussels and Jerusalem.

He worked at The Boston Globe for a dozen years, four of them as its legal and Supreme Court correspondent. He is the author of “Battle for Justice: How the Bork Nomination Shook America,” which was named one of the best 25 books of 1989 by The New York Public Library and awarded a Silver Gavel by the American Bar Association.
