A Short History of the Jewish People: From Legendary Times to Modern Statehood
Macmillan, 1998 - 274 стор.
A Short History of the Jewish People fills a gap in the literature by providing a concise, popularly written narrative account that introduces readers to all of the major political events, wanderings, cultural environments, and individuals to contribute to the shaping of the Jewish people into who they are today. Organized chronologically, the book covers the entire sweep of the Jewish experience from legendary times to the peace agreements now being negotiated in the Middle East. Each chapter covers one of the chronological units generally accepted among historians (The First Commonwealth, The Second Commonwealth, The Jews in the Age of Islamic Ascendancy, etc.). Maps, illustrations, and sidebars with entertaining stories enliven the very readable text. For general readers and students alike, A Short History of the Jewish People will satisfy the broad audience in need of a definitive history to be read in one or two enjoyable, informative sittings.
