Overview

"A Historical Atlas of the Jewish People presents more than three thousand years of the Jewish experience in a comprehensive and accessible format." Virtually all of the key elements of Jewish history and culture are examined: We explore the earliest pre-history and background of the Bible: the movements of the Israelite tribes; the revolts, wars, and religious developments. We see the growth and maturation of the Jewish faith within the context of Middle Eastern history. We observe the development of the Diaspora following the cataclysm of exile, and the spread of Jews and Judaism not only into Europe, Asia Minor, and North Africa, but as far away as China and India. We are introduced to scholars and philosophers, scientists and artists, writers and performers, statesmen and revolutionaries. We witness the horrors of persecution: the Crusades, the Inquisitions, the pogroms, and the Holocaust. We travel along with the millions of immigrants to the "Golden Land" and watch as they and their American-born children create new lives and a new culture. We are there for the birth of political Zionism, the founding of the State of Israel, and the saga of its survival.

The history of the Jews spans more than two millennia and encompasses most parts of the globe. Featuring hundreds of brilliantly detailed maps, photographs, and drawings, and rich with chronologies and commentaries by leading experts, this beautifully designed volume sets forth this amazing saga pictorially in an authoritative work of scholarship.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Publishing an atlas purporting to cover the history of the Jewish people from antiquity to the present is a courageous, even audacious act, particularly when all this is to be done in fewer than 300 pages. Yet this atlas of the Jewish people succeeds beautifully in doing just that. . .Covering three millennia of Jewish history and culture through a combination of concise text, accurate and well-drawn maps, and a sumptuous array of photographs, diagrams, and reproductions of paintings, this atlas succeeds in covering all the main themes of the Jewish experience. The material is arranged chronologically and systematically, and a glossary and index are included. -- Je huda Reinharz, Tauber Institute, Brandeis University., Waltham, Massachusetts
