Belonging: The Story of the Jews 1492–1900 (Story of the Jews Vol 2)
SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE
Selected as a Book of the Year 2017 by the Daily Telegraph, Mail on Sunday and Observer
Belonging isa magnificent cultural history abundantly alive with energy, character and colour.
From the Jews' expulsion from Spain in 1492 it tells the stories not just of rabbis and philosophers but of a poetess in the ghetto of Venice; a boxer in Georgian England; a general in Ming China; an opera composer in nineteenth-century Germany. The story unfolds in Kerala and Mantua, the starlit hills of Galilee, the rivers of Colombia, the kitchens of Istanbul, the taverns of Ukraine an the mining camps of California. It sails in caravels, rides the stage coaches and the railways, trudges the dawn streets of London, hobbles along with the remnant of Napoleon's ruined army.
The Jewish history is a history that is about, and for, all of us. And in our own time of anxious arrivals and enforced departures, the Jews' search for a home is more startlingly resonant than ever.
