From Library Journal The vitality and longevity of Jewish culture raises the question: How did this tenacious people survive throughout history when many other cultures and religions were annihilated or absorbed? Uniquely, they accomplished this without a homeland for nearly 2000 years. The work, a revision of a huge history written shortly after World War II, doesn't dwell on the Holocaust but presents a history of ancient and modern Jewish states and spells out how Torah and Talmud kept alive a tradition of abstract thought: a potent survival tool. The work also details differences between Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews and the split that created Christianity. The rift among the Semites, i.e., with Islam and the Arabs, gets less attention. Anna Fields narrates this classic, which, to Jews and non-Jews alike, successfully captures the history of the Jewish experience. A useful addition to most collections.AJames Dudley, Copiague, NY.

Good book for knowing Judaism in short time. Starts from the beginning of Judaism and has got good details but at times biased. Leer comentario completo

Review: Jews, God, and History

Crítica de los usuarios  - Michael - Goodreads

Here's a guy with zero academic credentials who wrote a pretty darn good history of the Jews from ancient times to modern. It has all the "greatest hits," more broad than deep. A good one to bring to shul on a Saturday. Leer comentario completo
