Summary
"... Ultimate visual survey of Jewish history from the emergence of the Jews in ancient Palestine right up to the present day ... Every facet of Jewish life is explored, with authoritative coverage of such crucial topics as the great diasporas, the flowering of Yiddish culture in Europe, the pogroms and persecutions -- from the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492 to the tragic years of the Holocaust -- the rebirth of Zionism in the 19th century, the foundation of modern Israel, highlights of the Arab-Israeli conflict including the invasion of Lebanon, and the way of life of Jews inside and outside their homeland in the world of today. It demonstrates the key role that migration -- whether forced or voluntary -- has played in Jewish history and shows how the story of the Jews has been and continues to be a key factor in the development of Western civilization as a whole." -- Inside front cover
