Description

In "Scattered Among the Peoples, historian Allan Levine presents a vivid and distinctly human perspective on how the Jewish people survived eight hundred years of persecution and forced migration, building and rebuilding their lives and communities. Structured as a chronological series of moment-in-time portraits, focusing on individuals and their interaction with their families and society, the narrative carries readers through the economic, political, social, and intellectual climates of some of the world's most famous and fascinating cosmopolitan centers. Levine has written an impressive and immensely readable book, one that is an important contribution to the literature of Jewish history.show more

Review quote

"Immensely informative and accessible....Levine does a remarkably fine job describing the many aspects of Jewish life in the Diaspora...and has masterfully described the Jew's complicated ties to the West, and endurance in the face of extreme adversity."show more
