    Fascinating Vignettes of Jewish History

    Mr. Cooper offers us a series of short biographical and historical facts in world history and are interesting reading. Of course as the full title states most stories deal with the pivotal role played by Jewish people in these pivotal times in history These vignettes, most less than a page in length, cover a wide spectrum of history and are divided by time and region into six sections: Near East: Early Times; Western Europe: Trying to Fit In; Central Europe and The East: The Unwanted Diaspora; Holocaust: Perpetrators, Bystanders, Rescuers; America: Finding a Home and Contributing; and Israel: Building and Defending a Nation. These stories contain many facts and anecdotes that cover the spectrum of the importance but will leave you with a better understanding of the Jewish story.
