New York, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2005. New York: Knopf, 2005. Reprint, second printing. 8vo. Quarter Cloth, 831 pp. including index. "Howard M. Sachar has a good story to tell. The history of Jews in modern times from the 18th century to the present is an epic saga, and Sachar attempts to hit all the high points, dealing with the six continents on which Jews have lived. (Only Antarctica does not come into play.) He concludes with an assessment of Jewish prospects in the 21st century. The result is a rich and balanced account of the emergence of Jews as major players in the worlds of commerce, culture and politics and also as victims of vicious and at times murderous anti-Semitism. This is a wide-ranging comparative study that provides a comprehensive and readable overview of modern Jewish history." Washington Post. New in new dust jacket, protected with a mylar cover.. Reprint. Quarter Cloth. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
