Summary

Summary

A work of prodigious and meticulous scholarship by some of Israel's most brilliant scholars, this atlas portrays every aspect of Jewish history that lends itself to cartographic interpretation, from biblical times to the present day.

This is the fascinating story of how an ancient people, separated from their roots and dispersed throughout the world survived in exile for 2000 years and eventually returned and recreated itself within the framework of a modern state.

In one profusely illustrated volume, the reader is presented with in-depth coverage of major themes in biblical, Mishnaic, Talmudic, Medieval, and modern Jewish history by the foremost authorities in their field.
