Milton Viorst: Journalist and Author Who Combined Traditional Reportage and Historical Analysis

From a Washington Post obit by Brian Murphy headlined “Milton Viorst, writer who explored Mideast affairs, dies at 92”:

Milton Viorst, a journalist and author who mixed traditional reportage and historical analysis to explore subjects from the 1960s rights struggles to Middle East strife, including assertions that massive U.S. military aid to Israel has hurt chances for peace, died in Washington.

Over a career spanning seven decades and more than 10 books, Mr. Viorst toggled between the worlds of on-the-scene reporting for the New Yorker and other mainstream publications, and scholarly research and policy punditry on U.S. affairs and the Middle East.
