Baker & Taylor
The late author of Spartacus and April Morning traces the epic history of the Jewish people in a study that spans six thousand years from ancient times to the Holocaust, examining Jewish customs, philosophy, religion, traditions, and influence and bringing to life the men and women who have shaped the history of a people. Reprint.

NBN
Beginning in the ancient world, this colorful, fast-paced saga enriches our understanding of the Jews and their impact on the world. With drama no fiction can match, master storyteller Howard Fast traces the evolution of a tradition powerful enough to give lasting identity to a scattered, wandering people. Bringing to life the extraordinary men and women who have shaped history-Moses, Hillel, Jesus (and many more)-this compelling book explores the customs and philosophies that have endured persecution, emigration, and the Holocaust. Fast also probes the towering achievements of this unique and fascinating people, illustrating their important role in the origins of Western culture, Christianity and modern Europe. The Jews is comprehensive, enlightening and utterly readable.
