Editorial Reviews

New York Times Book Review
Polemic and stimulating...an iconoclastic assault on contemporary Jewish self-imagery based on many of the latest academic studies.
Library Journal
This is the most recent comprehensive history of the Jews in the English language. Cantor is his usual provocative self in delineating what he sees as the meaning of Jewish ethnicity and the significance of Jewish history. (LJ 11/15/94) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
