HASH(0x9101a4ec) out of 5 stars A Treasury of Information 11 Dec. 1999
By Ursula Mayer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Much, much more than an atlas, this is a wonderful compendium of Jewish lore and history, that makes it invaluable for anyone who desires a better understanding of Judaism, Jewish history and the Jewish people and their culture.
The book covers Jewish history and Judiasm and Jews in all their many varieties and will probably act as an eye opener for thos who have a narrow or stereotyped image of Jews. It extends from ancient days down to the mid-1980's (the information on Russian and Ethiopian Jews needs updating).
The illustrations are sumptuous and the maps are generally clear, thought at times misleading: the naive reader might get the impression that Jewish life is non existent in the USA between Dallas and Tucson, Kansas City and Las Vegas, and Minneapolis and Seattle. They would also come away with the impression that Israel's Jewish population is less dense than that of Southern California or the North East Industrial belt, and that it is on a par with that of Birobidzhan, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and the eastern and western extremities of Cuba.
I keep it handy by my desk for reference--but unfortunately for my work, I often get distracted into reading much more text, scanning more pictures, and looking at yet more map detail than I had intended. I recommend it as an informative background resource both for those steeped in Judaism and Jewish life who erroneously think they know all there is to know, and as a basic text to those seeking to trace and understand their Jewish ancestry or to find a way (back) into Judaism.

This is a great book to learn basic Jewish history that is never covered in the typical history classes.

The history and culture of the Jews from their origins to the present day is the subject of this very rich, and informative work.
