Newly revised and updated to include new maps, this is the seventh edition of Martin Gilbert's atlas tracing the world-wide migrations of the Jews from ancient Mesopotamia to modern Israel.

Spanning over four thousand years of history in over 140 maps, it presents a vivid picture of a fascinating people and the trials and tribulations which have haunted their story.

The themes covered include:

  • prejudice and violence

  • migrations and movements

  • society and status

  • trade and culture

  • politics, government and war.

All students of history, and of Jewish history in particular will find this new edition as useful, helpful and invaluable as its six predecessors.

Gilbert 's maps, both the original and the newer contributions, are carefully drawn and packed with information The extensive underlying research obviously conducted by Gilbert shines through in many of the maps and gives the Atlas a reassuring feel of accuracy and authority all libraries of any size, including collections serving the general public, should own a recent edition. Inch-for-inch of page, it is hard to conceive of any other work, textual or graphical, conveying so much information on Jewish history in an accessible and digestible form. Excellent value. Reference Reviews'For sheer detail and breadth of scale [the maps] offer an essential reference for students and teachers.' BBC History Magazine
