Melanie Phillips is a British journalist, broadcaster and author. Her weekly column, which currently appears in The Times of London, has been published over the years in the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times and Daily Mail. She also writes for the Jerusalem Post and Jewish Chronicle, is a regular panelist on BBC Radio's The Moral Maze and speaks on public platforms throughout the English-speaking world.
Melanie grew up in west London, the only child of British-born Jewish parents. She read English literature at St Anne’s College, Oxford University and trained as a journalist on a local paper. In 1996 she won the Orwell Prize for political journalism, but for three decades she has been one of the most controversial figures in British journalism as an embattled apostate from the left.
Her best-selling book Londonistan, about the British establishment's capitulation to Islamist aggression, was published in 2006 by Encounter, New York. She followed this in 2010 with The World Turned Upside Down: the Global Battle over God, Truth and Power, with a foreword by David Mamet and also published by Encounter. An updated edition of Guardian Angel, her personal and political memoir, is available in electronic and print format from Amazon.
