Benjamin Miller is a Full Professor of International Relations at the University of Haifa. In the years 2000-2002 he was Visiting Professor at the Department of Political Science at Duke University. Before that he was a tenured member of the department of International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He received a Ph. D. from the University of California at Berkeley and he was a Research Fellow at Harvard, MIT and Princeton University.
A second and expanded edition of Miller’s book, When Opponents Cooperate: Great Power Conflict and Collaboration in World Politics (Ann Arbor, Michigan: The University of Michigan Press) was published in 2002. He also published numerous articles on international relations theory and international and regional security. His current work focuses on constructing a theory of regional war and peace and applying it to the Balkans, South America, Western Europe and the Middle East in the 19th and 20th centuries. The title of his forthcoming book is States, Nations, and the Great Powers: The Sources of Regional War and Peace (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, forthcoming 2007). The book focuses on the effects of nationalism and the great powers on regional variations in war and peace both among different regions and also over time—from the l9th century to the 21 century.
