Tracing the worldwide migrations of the Jews from ancient Mesopotamia to modern Israel, this newly updated edition spans over four thousand years of history in 140 maps. It presents a vivid picture of a fascinating people and the trials and tribulations that have haunted their story. The themes covered include:

* Prejudice and Violence--from the destruction of Jewish independence between 722 and 586 B.C. to the Chmielnicki Massacres 1648-1656 and the flight from German persecution in the 1930s

* Migrations and Movements--from the entry into the Promised Land to the exodus from Ethiopia between 1974 and 1984

* Society and Status--from the geography of the Jews of China between 1000 and 1932 to the situation of the New York Jewry in 1900 and the position of the Jews of Syria

* Trade and Culture--from Jewish trade routes between 800 and 900 to the use of Hebrew printing presses between 1444 and 1860 and communal life in the ghettoes

* Politics, Government and War: from the Court Jews of the fifteenth century to the founding, wars and progress of the modern State of Israel
