JEWS, GOD AND HISTORY
Author: Max I. Dimont
Edited and revised by Ethel Dimont. The Los Angeles Times said, and we agree, " Unquestionably the best popular history of the Jews written in the English language." How have the Jews survived through so many millenia while other civilizations have declined and perished? What qualities mark the culture that produced Moses, Christ, Spinoza, Marx, Freud, and Einstein? From ancient Palestine through Europe and Asia, to America and modern Israel, the author shows how the saga of the Jews is interwoven with the story of virtually every nation on earth. This is a tale of a people escaping annihilation, fighting, falling back, advancing-a lively and fascinating look at how the Jews have contributed to humankind's spiritual and intellectual heritage in remarkable ways, and across a remarkable span of history.
