Description
How have the Jews survived through so many millennia while other civilizations have declined and perished? What qualities mark the cultures that produced Moses, Christ, Spinoza, Marx, Freud, and Einstein/ From ancient Palestine through Europe and Asia, to America and modern Israel, Max I. Dimont 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. 'More interesting than the facts Dimont has collected . . . is the fascinating reasoning of a bright and unorthodox mind.' San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle 'A book of life and hope. There are few greater documents to the vitality and perseverance of man than this history of the Jews.' St. Louis Post-Dispatch
