2 Scheindlin, Raymond P. The Chronicles of the Jewish People
0765199750 / 9780765199751; Among the peoples of the Western world, only the Jewish people existed as a nation before the Roman Empire. Since that time, the Jews have been scattered and dispersed throughout the world, and they have adopted the customs, language, dress, and appearance of the many different nations and cultures that have been their hosts. Despite this, the Jewish people today retain a remarkable sense of nationhood, of shared origin and destiny. Scholarly in scope and depth, lively and accessible in style, and beautifully illustrated in full color, this is a fascinating study of the experiences of the Jews throughout the world and throughout history. Includes a history time line, bibliography, and index. The deep blue binding has light wear at the corners and spine ends. The board bottom is bumped, and the prior owner's name is on the ffep. The jacket has a 1 1/2" tear at the bottom front near the spine along with wear at the spine end and minor wear at the corners. In a protective cover. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
