The course of modern Jewish history by Howard Morley Sachar( Book )

74 editions published between 1958 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This encyclopedic history of the Jews, first published in 1958, not only chronicles an assailed and enduring people, but assesses its impact on the modern world. The new edition casts additional light on the milestones of the Jewish saga from the eighteenth century to the close of the twentieth: the Jews' emergence from the ghetto and into the heart of Western society, the debate between the voices of tradition, assimilation, and Zionism, virtual destruction during the Holocaust, and troubled rebirth in Israel. Here, too, are evocative portraits of today's diaspora, from the Jews of America to the embattled communities of the former Soviet Union and the Third World.--Adapted from back cover

The distinguished historian of the Jewish people, Howard M. Sachar, gives us a comprehensive and enthralling chronicle of the achievements and traumas of the Jews over the last four hundred years. Tracking their fate from Western Europe's age of mercantilism in the seventeenth century to the post-Soviet and post-imperialist Islamic upheavals of the twenty-first century, Sachar applies his renowned narrative skill to the central role of the Jews in many of the most impressive achievements of modern civilization: whether in the rise of economic capitalism or of political socialism; in the discoveries of theoretical physics or applied medicine; in "higher" literary criticism or mass communication and popular entertainment. As his account unfolds and moves from epoch to epoch, from continent to continent, from Europe to the Americas and the Middle East, Sachar evaluates communities that, until lately, have been underestimated in the perspective of Jewish and world history'among them, Jews of Sephardic provenance, of the Moslem regions, and of Africa. By the same token, Sachar applies a master's hand in describing and deciphering the Jews' unique exposure and functional usefulness to totalitarian movements'fascist, Nazi, and Stalinist. In the process, he shines an unsparing light on the often widely dissimilar behavior of separate European peoples, and on separate Jewish populations, during the Holocaust. A distillation of the author's lifetime of scholarly research and teaching experience, A History of the Jews in the Modern World provides a source of unsurpassed intellectual richness for university students and educated laypersons alike

Israel and Europe : an appraisal in history by Howard Morley Sachar( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sachar traces Britain's efforts to maintain a strategic foothold in the Holy Land well after the termination of its governmental authority in Palestine; the Soviet Union's initial diplomatic and military support of the Zionists as its potential "clients" in the Middle East, and its later, even more vigorous embrace of Israel's Arab enemies; France's short-lived military alliance with "gallant little Israel"; and the unlikely emergence of Germany as the Jewish state's principal continental benefactor and its eventual indispensable sponsor for de facto membership in the European Community. Sachar similarly casts new light on Israel's ideological courtship of a receptive Socialist International and a recalcitrant Vatican; the murderous overspill of Arab guerrilla warfare into European territory, and Israeli counterattacks; and Spain's and Turkey's diplomatic exploitation of Israel for access to Washington
Dreamland : Europeans and Jews in the aftermath of the Great War by Howard Morley Sachar( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great War, as World War I was known in its time, was described by its survivors and contemporary historians as "the war to end all wars," "the war to make the world safe for democracy." By its end, in November 1918, Europe's authoritarian old empires had fallen, and new and seemingly democratic successor states and governments were rising from the ensuing debris. In chronicling an era that was both visionary and tempestuous, Howard M. Sachar directs our attention to the fate specifically of Europe's Jewish minority as a classic litmus test of the Continent's transformation."--Jacket
