The Finkelstein tenure case

Norman Finkelstein, a political science professor at DePaul University, is much-read and admired in Arab and leftist circles. This year he faces a tenure decision, and it has generated a lot of interest nationally and internationally. Alan Dershowitz has been active in campaigning against tenure.

The New York Times covers the story today with an even tone, as if each man were equally plausible. Fair enough. It is worth reading.

But we hope to bring you further coverage of the issue in the near future.
