Notes:
A history of the Jews is possibly the greatest story that can be told. It is the story of mankind - at its most noble and at its most barbaric. From the invention of a single deity and the killing of his embodied Son through to the production of urban modernity, so much of supreme importance for humanity bears the imprint of Jewish thinking and culture.

This is a fascinating book blending Biblical scholarship, archaeology and history. It is dense on detail but Simon Schama writes as he speaks and it is a very readable book.
