Vitality floods its pages. Philosophers and kings, warriors and merchants, poets and financiers come alive as the story ranges across time and the globe.

Brilliantly narrated in a thousand and one episodes, this newly revised and updated edition tells the story of a people escaping annihilation and cultural death, fighting, falling back, advancing. Infused with an almost miraculous life force, they have survived the death of civilizations and have triumphantly contributed to man’s spiritual and intellectual heritage for some four thousand years.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Unquestionably the best popular history of the Jews written in the English language.” Los Angeles Times
“Successfully captures the history of the Jewish experience. A useful addition to most collections.” Library Journal
“The author has turned four thousand years in the life of one people into a lively, canny, authoritative, brainy, and informative page-turner…[Anna Fields’] listener-friendly cadences express not only the sense of the lines but also the connections among ideas and the author’s underlying intelligence.” AudioFile
