A COMPREHENSIVE AND DETAILED PICTURE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN MAPS
'An unusual and compelling insight into Jewish history . . . sheer detail and breadth of scale.'
BBC History
'There is probably not a single person, Jew or Gentile, scholar or layman, who will not find Gilbert valuable and
fascinating, and it is the best possible introduction to Jewish history imaginable.'
The Jerusalem Post
In this new edition of The Routledge Atlas of Jewish History a series of 146 maps traces the worldwide migration of the
Jews from ancient Mesopotamia to the opening years of the twenty-first century. Spanning over four thousand years of
history, it presents 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 ВС to the Chmielnicki
Massacres 1648-1656 and the flight from German persecution in the 1930s. Now updated to include the incidence of
anti-semitic attacks in the Americas and Europe.
• Migrations and Movements - from the entry into the Promised Land, and the exodus from Ethiopia between 1974 and 1984,
to Jewish migration in the twenty-first century.
• Society, Trade and Culture - from Jewish trade routes between 800 and 900, the geography of the Jews of China between
1000 and 1932, and the use of Hebrew printing presses between 1444 and 1860 and communal life in the ghettoes, to the
situation of the New York Jewry in 1900 and 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.
