Review: A History of the Jews (Perennial Library)

User Review  - James Richardson - Goodreads

4000 years of Jewish History in 600 pages......... Huge focus on the last 200 years. I would prefer more on the biblical history especially in the time of Christ and the Jewish reaction and role in his crucifixion. Read full review
