Book Description

This 9th edition of Martin Gilbert’s Atlas of Jewish History spans over four thousand years of history in 192 maps, presenting a vivid picture of a fascinating people and the trials and tribulations which have haunted their story. The themes covered include:

• Prejudice and Violence- from the destruction of Jewish independence between 722 and 586 BC to the flight from German persecution in the 1930s. Also covers the incidence of anti-semitic attacks in the Americas and Europe.

• Migrations and Movements- from the entry into the promised land to Jewish migration in the twenty- first century, including new maps on recent emigration to Israel from Europe and worldwide.

• Society, Trade and Culture- from Jewish trade routes between 800 and 900 to the situation of world Jewry in the opening years of the twenty- first century.

• Politics, Government and War- from the Court Jews of the fifteenth century to the founding and growth of the modern State of Israel.

This new edition now includes an additional 38 of Martin Gilbert’s maps, across the whole range of Jewish history, originally published across a range of publications, now gathered in this one volume for the first time. Forty years on from its first publication, this book is still an indispensable guide to Jewish history.
