The “epic and stirring story” of 4,000
years of Judaism—told by a #1 New York
Times
–bestselling author (Jewish Quarterly).

/>
From their nomadic beginnings and the rise of Moses to the
kings David and Solomon through the Diaspora and the unthinkable horror
of the Holocaust—and culminating in the founding of the state of
Israel—this is the sweeping tale of the Jews. Howard Fast, author
of the classic Spartacus, displays his gift for compelling
narrative throughout this eminently readable and well-researched
saga.
 
In Fast’s telling, truth is stranger,
and more inspiring, than fiction. “Here, I decided, was one of
the most exciting and romantic adventures in all the history of
mankind,” he explains in his introduction. “It had a
continuity that spanned most of recorded history. It was filled with
drama, passion, tragedy, and faith; and with all due reverence for the
scholars, it pleaded for a storyteller to tell it as a story, indeed as
the story of all stories.”
 
Fast’s
accomplishment is required reading not only for lovers of great
literature but also for anyone interested in the march of civilization.
Barry Holtz, the editor of The Schocken Guide to Jewish Books
hails The Jews as “an exciting and pleasurable
[introduction] to a four-thousand-year epic.”
 This
ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare
photos from the author’s estate.
