Due to Neocon/Zionist pressure earlier this summer over Joel Kovel’s book, “Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine”, the University of Michigan Press stopped distributing books from the London-based independent publishing house Pluto Press. Last week, the University of Michigan Press overturned this decision by voting unanimously to continue distributing Pluto Press. Kovel’s stance on Israel is a unique one.
