Jewish History: A Very Short Introduction

David N. Myers

Very Short Introductions

  • An exceptionally concise, accessible, and wide-ranging account of the long history of the Jews
  • Offers a new theory to explain the Jews' survival, based on the relationship between antisemitism and assimilation
  • While identifying continuities, it notes variation in the local customs, social status, and self-perception of Jews across time and space
