Product description


"In his engaging, stylistic prose, the author proceeds chronologically and delves into fascinating personal stories that reveal the Jewish experience...A fluid history lesson from an always engaging guide."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"An engaging and electrifying read by a skilled literary craftsman, cultural historian and tour guide . . . Schama enchants his readers by introducing colorful characters worthy of a Charles Dickens novel... The Story of the Jews dazzles with the art and alchemy of an adventure novel."--Washington Post

"Magisterial... With astonishing range and extraordinary synthesising powers, Schama captures the drama of Jewish History.... Between the poles of their regular, unannounced acculturation and anti-Semitism lay Jewish life in all its vibrant, messy and colourful forms."--Financial Times

"Schama is a remarkable storyteller. His approach is cinematic. . . A riveting picture, generously rendered . . . Schama has made an eloquent and a far-reaching case for why Jews needed a small piece of earth they could call home."--New York Times Book Review

"Magisterial...Wonderfully rich...Superb...In the company of Schama -- one of the finest writers and thinkers of his generation -- we are guaranteed a guide both insightful and eloquent."--Daily Telegraph (London)

"A magnificent achievement."--The Guardian

"A technicolor blockbuster."--The Spectator (U.K)

"Immensely erudite and compulsively readable."--New Statesman

"Profoundly illuminating."--The Observer (London)

"Remarkable... [a] glittering gemstone of a book."--The Times (UK)
