"The Jewish Odyssey"

The Book Review

To savor, to study, to send to someone as a great gift book, to steal some time from a busy schedule to read and revel in its superb content and archival photos - -  “The Jewish Odyssey” by Marek Halter (Rizzoli/Flammario,$49.95, 220 pages) is the book for you.  Sub-titled “An Illustrated History,” Halter’s terrific tome is bound to be a classic. We are there “From Sumer to Jerusalem” to “Next Year in Jerusalem” to “Israel and “Diaspora” in a panoramic  work that spans more than four thousand years. The times of triumph and the times of terror, the times of accomplishment and the times of agony – all are clearly and carefully presented by  Halter, an academic, activist and author of more than twenty books. This one is his gem.
