Professor Bartov is considered one of the world's leading authorities on the subject of genocide. He is the author of four books and the editor of three volumes; his work has been translated into several languages. Professor Bartov's book Murder in Our Midst (1996) received the Fraenkel Prize in Contemporary History. His most recent book, Mirrors of Destruction (2000), is an analysis of the relationship between total war and state-organized genocide and the emergence of modern identity. During 2002-2003 he was on leave at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard, where he wrote a new work entitled The "Jew" in Cinema: From the Golem to Don't Touch My Holocaust (forthcoming). At the same time, he conducted research on another project, the history of interethnic relations and violence in the East Galician town of Buczacz. This research took him to western Ukraine, where Buczacz is now located and he will continue working on this project through a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation. Professor Bartov received his D.Phil. from Oxford University.
