Neville Teller

Neville Teller

Neville Teller was born in London, read Modern History at Oxford University, and then had a varied career in marketing, general management, publishing and the Civil Service, while consistently writing for BBC radio as dramatist and abridger. He began writing about the Middle East in the 1980s, sometimes using the pen-name Edmund Owen. In 2008 he published a collection of these pieces, together with some poetry, short stories, letters and a radio drama, under the title: “One Man’s Israel”. In 2011 he published “One Year in the History of Israel and Palestine,” a blow-by-blow account of the events of 2010 as they impacted on the effort, led by the United States, to resolve the Israel-Palestine situation. His book “The Search for Détente: Israel and Palestine 2012-2014” was published in the autumn of 2014 and followed the latest, and ultimately abortive, Obama-Kerry peace talks effort. He writes regularly for the "Jerusalem Post" and the "Eurasia Review" and he runs the blog: “A Mid-East Journal”. In the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2006 he was awarded an MBE “for services to broadcasting and to drama”.
