"It is a story like no other: an epic of endurance against destruction, of creativity in oppression, joy amidst grief, the affirmation of life against the steepest of odds. It spans the millennia and the continents - from India to Andalusia and from the bazaars of Cairo to the streets of Oxford. It takes you to unimagined places: to a Jewish kingdom in the mountains of southern Arabia; a Syrian synagogue glowing with radiant wall paintings; the palm groves of the Jewish dead in the Roman catacombs. And its voices ring loud and clear, from the severities and ecstasies of the Bible writers to the love poems of wine bibbers in a garden in Muslim Spain. Within these pages, the Talmud burns in the streets of Paris, massed gibbets hang over the streets of medieval London, a Major can illuminator redraws the world; candles are lit, chants are sung, mules are packed, ships loaded with spice and gems founder at sea. And a great story unfolds. Not - as often imagined - of a culture apart, but of a Jewish world immersed in and imprinted by the peoples among whom they have dwelled, from the Egyptians to the Greeks, from the Arabs to the Christians, which makes the story of the Jews everyone's story, too."--Publisher's description.… (més)

É uma história como nenhuma outra: uma epopeia de resistência contra a destruição, de criatividade sob a opressão, de alegria contra o desgosto e uma afirmação de vida contra as mais difíceis possibilidades.
Esta obra abrange milénios e continentes. Leva o leitor a locais nunca imaginados: a um reino judaico nas montanhas do Sul da Arábia, a uma sinagoga síria, às palmeiras sob as quais jazem os judeus mortos nas catacumbas romanas. E as suas vozes fazemse ouvir com toda a clareza, dos rigores e dos êxtases dos autores da Bíblia aos poemas de amor num jardim da Espanha muçulmana. E uma grande história desenrola-se. Não a história de uma cultura à parte – como muitas vezes se imagina – mas de um mundo judaico imerso no meio dos outros povos no meio dos quais viveram e que os marcaram. O que faz da história dos judeus também a história de todos nós.

Epic, thoroughly well researched, and beautifully written. Schama brings a frequently-tragic history to life, and this is full of fascinating historical surprises (to me) - such as the Khazar Correspondence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khazar_Correspondence).

If I were to make a criticism, it would be that this is not an introductory history, which is how it was marketed in the UK. A competent understanding of Judaism and the broad sweep of European history is required. If you don't know your mishnah from your haggadah, or your gemara from your talmud, you should begin elsewhere - as I had to. ( )

No matter where you come from, you will learn something from this book, be it about the Jews, antiquity, philosophy, religion or the history of Christian Europe. Shama takes us through the allotted time period on the edge of our seats, full of deep history and deep insights into what shaped the history of the Jews, but also how anti-semitism evolved. You will hear many echoes of today's world (and not just anti-Jewish sentiment, but anti-anyone) in these pages.

I stopped short of five stars because I felt the book stopped short of being an unassailable history, in the sense that while he documents 95% of what he is saying, occasionally he just asserts things. While the book is well-written, it is not well-edited: his editors failed him in small places where a reference to something prior is obscure and that sort of thing.

But don't let that dissuade you. It's an extremely compelling look at a one of the world's great "outsider" cultures. How the Jews fared in mainstream Roman, Christian and Muslim societies at various times and places tells a lot about what made those worlds tick. And his documenting of the atrocities from around 1000 CE to 1492, largely in the Christian world, should be required reading for all of Europe and North America. It's a grim tale, documented both in great detail and in very human anecdotes that go beyond the statistics.

Lastly, the connection of Jewish society with other West Asian cultures, and later the Muslima Umma, highlights the way in which European scholars have conveniently appropriated Greece and even Egypt as somehow Western. Shama's work incidentally documents how late Europe was to that party, and the role that Jews and Arabs played in spreading Greek and even Roman science and philosophy.. ( )
