Publisher's Summary

“There is no human being on the face of this earth exempt from the Jewish influence. For as long as there has been history, the Jew has wandered through it, shaping it at times, riding the current silently at other times, but always leaving his mark. History without the Jew? It is inconceivable.”—Howard Fast. His popular history brings the history of the Jewish people into focus, from Genesis to contemporary times.

The Jews: Story of a People

Great book and superb narration! The author is truly brilliant. A few times I felt that there is an exaggeration, but in general, it was clear that he is trying to be objective. I felt that his story unfolded in the best tradition "an honest tale speeds best being plainly told". I did not notice the moment when I realized that the story is a truly harrowing drama. I knew that the Jews have endured millenniums of persecution, but it did not even come to my mind that persecution was so cruel and repeated so many times.
I feel enriched immensely by listening this book.

What is the roots of main cause for the Jew to suffer? ?

It is good to hear Jewish story from a Jew. I am very sympathise with the people who worship God faithfully. But I am deeply puzzled that where is their God in the river of the history ? Or God want the Jew to learn something ? Also the Jew faced prosecution even far before Jesus Christ. In this sense, the author failed to dig out the roots of main cause.
