Professor Alan M. Dershowitz of Harvard Law School was described by Newsweek as "the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights." Italian newspaper Oggi called him "the best-known criminal lawyer in the world," and The Forward named him "Israel’s single most visible defender—the Jewish state’s lead attorney in the court of public opinion."
Born in Brooklyn, he was appointed to the Harvard Law School faculty at age 25 and became a full professor at age 28, the youngest in the school’s history. He has been a consultant to several presidential commissions, and has advised presidents, United Nations officials, prime ministers, governors, senators, and members of Congress. More than a million people have heard him lecture around the world. He is currently the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law Emeritus at Harvard.
Dershowitz is the author of 30 non-fiction works and two novels. More than a million of his books have been sold worldwide, in more than a dozen different languages. His recent titles include the bestseller The Case For Israel, Terror Tunnels, Rights From Wrong, The Case For Peace, The Case For Moral Clarity: Israel, Hamas and Gaza, and his autobiography Taking the Stand: My Life in the Law.

The Case Against the Iran Deal How Can We Now Stop Iran from Getting Nukes?By Alan Dershowitz
The greatest danger the world faces in the twenty-first century is an Iranian nuclear arsenal. That is why decisions regarding Iran’s nuclear program may be the most important of our time. The negotiations that led to this bad deal were deeply flawed. But it doesn’t follow that the deal should be rejected by Congress. If the President is right that rejecting this deal will be worse than accepting, then he has put us in the terrible position of choosing between bad and worse.
In The Case Against the Iran Deal: How Can We Now Stop Iran From Getting Nukes?, Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz evaluates the pros and cons of the Iran nuclear agreement. He asks the fundamental questions about what the deal means, how it will be implemented, and whether we now have the capacity to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
As a lawyer with decades of negotiation experience, and a regular commentator on Middle Eastern politics, Dershowitz explains how we could have gotten a better deal, and offers a unique analysis of the Obama administration’s negotiations with Iran and the implications of a deal for Israel, the Middle East, and the global community. It is a call for both intelligent reflection and for determined action to stop Iran from getting the bomb.The clock is ticking. We must find ways to repair the damage this deal threatens to do. This book proposes solutions along with its constructive criticism.
Electile Dysfunction A Guide for Unaroused VotersBy Alan Dershowitz
If you’re frustrated with the choices for president this year, you’re not alone. 81
percent of voters say they’d “feel afraid” if either Trump or Clinton takes office—but
what recourse do we have? The American electorate is plagued by a widespread
feeling of impotence.
But this may be the most important election in generations: governments and
radicals around the world are moving toward extremes of hard left and hard right,
and the same frustrations are fissuring American civil society. Never has a search for
stability been more necessary. It’s imperative that voters understand the stakes,
how we got here, and how to move forward.
In this book, Alan Dershowitz takes the techniques he’s used in five decades of
teaching to sort out how each candidate relates to basic domestic and foreign policy
values. You’re left to form your own conclusions, based on your own values—this is
a choice you can’t afford to let someone else make for you.
