It Furthers One To See The Great Man

I have posted about Norman Finkelstein before: the respected American academic specialist on the Middle East who was denied tenure by his university after a lengthy and hysterical campaign led by Alan Dershowitz (a far less-respected academic, presumably motivated by Finkelstein's having exposed the plagiarism in his book ) .

Imagine my delight to discover that Prof. Finkelstein is not only doing a lecture tour of the UK, but coming to Edinburgh next week! I am attempting to get hold of a ticket. I would expect he'll be very well worth hearing, and I encourage anyone with an interest in the region to try to get to one of his lectures.
