9780060156985 [Read by Nadia May -aka- Wanda McCaddon] This historical magnum opus covers 4,000 years of the extraordinary history of the Jews as a people, a culture, and a nation. It shows the impact of Jewish character on the world: their genius, imagination and, most of all, their ability to persevere despite severe persecutions. Compelling insights into events and individuals are chronologically detailed, from Moses and Jesus to Spinoza, Marx, Freud, the Rothschilds, and Golda Meir. ''Why have I written a history of the Jews? . . . When I was working on my History of Christianity, I became aware for the first time in my life of the magnitude of debt Christianity owes to Judaism . . . the book gave me the chance to reconsider objectively, in the light of a study covering nearly 4,000 years, the most intractable of all human questions: what are we on earth for? Is history merely a series of events whose sum is meaningless?'' --from the Prologue
