Norman Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics at Princeton University. For many years he taught political theory and the Israel-Palestine conflict. He is currently an independent scholar. Finkelstein is the author of nine books which have been translated into more than forty foreign editions, and he continues to write and give lectures regularly.
A 2010 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported Dr. Finkelstein's independent research. The American Educational Trust served as a fiscal sponsor for this grant.
