Jewish History in 100 Nutshells Paperback – January 1, 1996
Enhance your purchase
How does this Jewish history book differ from all others? Instead of burdening the reader with endless details about every single aspect of Jewish history, Pasachoff and Littman provide essential information, easily digested by readers of all ages, that chronicles only the major events and people of the past. The history of the Jews covers a period of over 3,500 years, with an overwhelming number of countries and lands. It is a microcosm of the history of the world. Consequently, even a one-volume work can be difficult to read from cover to cover to gain the sweep of Jewish history. This book speaks to the reader who is interested in individual topics or periods and wants a quick-reference guide to the people and places that truly shaped Jewish history. At the same time, if read from beginning to end, these 'nutshells' will provide a chronological history of the Jews.

I bought this book for one of my college classes. So far I find it interesting and informative. It's nice to know about events like the Six Day War and other historical happenings.

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 26, 2001
I found this book to be a easy-to-read introduction to Judaism from biblical times to the present. The book is organized into 100 chapters of 2 to 4 pages each, presented in chronological order, providing a great introduction to the history of the Jewish people. This is an interesting entry-level history of the ups and downs of Jewish civilization, with no theological axe to grind.
