Beyond Chutzpah: On the Misuse of Anti-Semitism and the Abuse of Historyby Norman G. Finkelstein
Synopses & Reviews
"A very solid, important, and highly informative book. Norman Finkelstein provides extensive details and analysis, with considerable historical depth and expert research, of a very wide range of issues concerning Israel, the Palestinians, and the U.S."—Noam Chomsky, author of Hegemony or Survival
"The most comprehensive, systematic, and well-documented work of its kind. It is one of the harshest—rational and nonemotional—texts about the daily practices of the occupation and colonization of the Palestinian territories by Israel, and it is an excellent demonstration of how and why the blind defenders of Israel, by basing their arguments on false facts and figures, actually bring more damage than gains to their cause."—Baruch Kimmerling, George S. Wise Professor of Sociology, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
"A brave and daring challenge, meticulously researched. Must reading for anyone committed to a just and enduring peace in the Middle East."—Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!
Beyond Chutzpah is a brilliantly illuminating study of the lengths to which some American Jews will go to present Israel in a favorable light. On display are all the sterling qualities for which Finkelstein has become famous: erudition, originality, spark, meticulous attention to detail, intellectual integrity, courage, and formidable forensic skills.”—Avi Shlaim, Professor of International Relations, Oxford University
The scholarship is simply superb. Finkelstein has clearly done his homework, and consulted and mastered a breathtaking range of material: primary sources and documents, scholarly works, reports old and new, correspondence with relevant individuals, and numerous other sources too. He has left no stone unturned.”—Mouin Rabbani, Contributing Editor, Middle East Report

Meticulously researched and tightly argued, Beyond Chutzpah points to a consensus among historians and human rights organizations on the factual record of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Norman G. Finkelstein exposes the corruption of scholarship and the contrivance of controversy shrouding human rights abuses, and interrogates the new anti-Semitism. This paperback edition adds a preface analyzing recent developments in the conflict, and a new afterword on Israel's construction of a wall in the West Bank.
This volume corrects the historical record of anti-Semitism, revealing recent scholarly consensus on the hottest issues of the Israel-Palestine conflict, especially human rights.
