Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Covering a span of time from prehistory through 1991, the data in this compendium are arranged in tabular form under the headings of General History, Jewish History, and Jewish Culture--with later headings dividing Jewish history into geographic areas. The biblical period is covered in fewer than 20 pages, and almost half the book is devoted to the 20th century. There is no articulated criteria for inclusion of material, and the choices in every category seem rather eclectic. Also, there is no clear demarcation among the categories, so that, for instance, obscure literary publications are frequently cited in the history columns. It is hard to tell what use can be made of this compilation other than as a resource for playing Jewish trivia.-- Carol R. Glatt, VA Medical Ctr. Lib., Philadelphia
