Norman Finkelstein has authored numerous books and articles on the Israel-Palestine conflict and related issues, including "Beyond Chutzpah: On the Abuse of Anti-Semitism and the Misuse of History", now available as an updated edition with a new preface; "The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering (2nd ed.) ; and "Image and Reality of the Israel-Palestine Conflict", (new revised ed.).

Finkelstein received his PhD in Political Science from Princeton University and has held faculty positions at Brooklyn College, Rutgers University, Hunter College, New York University, and DePaul University. He was denied tenure at DePaul after interference by Alan Dershowitz. On May 23, 2008, Finkelstein was denied entry to Israel and deported because of suspicions that "he had contact with elements 'hostile' to Israel."
