Norman Finkelstein - Reception
Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of History
Wine & Cheese Reception and Book-Signing - ticket includes preferential seating at lecture
In this long-awaited sequel to his international bestseller The Holocaust Industry, Norman G. Finkelstein moves from an iconoclastic interrogation of the new anti-Semitism to a meticulously researched expose of the corruption of scholarship on the Israel-Palestine conflict. Beyond Chutzpah lifts the veil of contrived controversy shrouding the Israel-Palestine conflict, enabling readers in search of a just and lasting peace to act on the basis of truth.
Finkelstein is critical of the proliferation of distortion masquerading as history, including, he argues, Professor Alan Dershowitz's bestseller, The Case for Israel. Dershowitz tried unsuccessfully to block publication of Beyond Chutzpah, employing a letter-writing campaign targeting the UC Press Board of Directors, the UC Administration, and Governor Schwarzenegger. Please join us in welcoming Finkelstein to the Bay Area.
