David I. Kertzer
David I. Kertzer is the author most recently of The Popes Against the Jews, which the New York Times hailed as "fascinating…[a] riveting piece of historical detective work" and Garry Wills praised as a "formidable scholarly achievement, staggeringly thorough." Kertzer was a finalist for the 1997 National Book Award for The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, which won the National Jewish Book Award. Writing in the New York Daily News, André Aciman said, "Kertzer is a brilliant analyst and knows how to weave the personal drama into the historical events." He is the Paul Dupee University Professor of Social Science at Brown University, where he is also a professor of anthropology and Italian studies.
