This is an outstanding introduction to Jewish history!
on 12 June 1998
Max Dimont's talent is comparable to that of the late Will Durant. He manages to give an accurate sketch of Judaic history with enough flavour to make it "come alive" for the non-historian. As a Jew, I found that Dimont the scholar is factual and respectful of the subject matter while adding much-needed levity in key moments. Highly recommended, especially for the bibliography.
