Norman Finkelstein, author of The Holocaust Industry (Verso 2000) and professor of political science at DePaul University, demystifies the Israel/Palestine conflict, driving away media bias and political spin that distorts the true nature of this historical discord. Grounded in history and guided by optimism, Finkelstein unravels the story of the Israel/Palestine conflict from its beginnings in the rise of Zionism in the early 19th century through the rise of the PLO. An Issue of Justice examines this long-standing problem from a pro-human rights perspective, never leaning toward either side. In the wake of Yasser Arafat’s passing that presents new possibilities and challenges to the resolution of Israel/Palestine conflict, Finkelstein provides a fresh, non-partisan approach to the study of this ongoing struggle.
