Story of the Jews Presents an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. This title takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; and a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings. Full description

Review:

"An exuberant tour de force" (Simon Sebag Montefiore Daily Mail)

"Schama at his best, a labour of love, as full of memorable incident as a Bellow novel and wittier than a Woody Allen movie" (The Times)

"Schama has written a proud and personal story of his people, one that will make a good starting point for those interested in one of history’s most fascinating and tragic tales" (Josh Glancy Sunday Times)

"Inspiring... Schama tells it with panache, weaving facts and anecdotes into a vivid history" (Observer)

"Unforgettable...a delicious cacophony of conversations and clamorous arguments echoing across history" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:

A landmark history of a culture, of a people and of a world by one of our most distinguished and electrifying historians
