On p. 155, note 16 misidentifies the author and title of the cited chapter in the book edited by Ronald Zweig.  The correct citation is to Dina Porat’s chapter entitled “Ben-Gurion and the Holocaust.” 

On p. 68 of Paradigm Lost the Washington-based center founded by Kenneth Marcus, named the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights under Law, was incorrectly identified as located at Brandeis University. It is neither located at Brandeis University nor affiliated with it.

The last sentence on p. 15 of Paradigm Lost, a quotation from Vladimir Jabotinsky, is missing one word. It should read: “This is a natural reaction and nothing will change it.”

On pp. 70 and 170, the name of the author of The Paradox of Plenty: Oil Booms and Petro-States, Terry Karl, is spelled incorrectly.

The second sentence in the last paragraph on p. 110 should read: “Before coming to the United States, where he earned his doctorate, he worked as a journalist in Israel.” This refers to Gershon Shafir who earned his doctorate in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley.

On p. 41 “1948” as the date of the first Israeli elections should be “1949.”

on p. 101 the date for the Camp David summit should be “July 2000″ not July 1999”

In the third line of the first full paragraph on p. 76, Yossi Beilin should be identified as having been a deputy “finance minister” not a deputy “prime minister”.
