This book may be like reading a college textbook, but as Paul Johnson tells, the Jewish race is the only race who has a written record that goes back to first recorded time.

Johnson had written an Cited by: Jewish history offers the extraordinary spectacle of a people, unique in this respect, which began its history with a well-defined concept of history and an almost conscious resolution to achieve a well-circumscribed plan on earth and then, without giving up this concept, avoided all.

Vol. VI (supplementary) has title " A history of the Jews in modern times"; general title is lettered on binding I. From the formation of the nation to the death of Antigonus the Asmonean (37 B.C.E.):   Mr. Schama’s history commences around the time Jews began to be thought of, by scholars, as a unified people; it ends with the Spanish Inquisition and the Jews’ expulsion from Spain.

I highly recommend Joseph Telushkin's book "Jewish Literacy". It's a superb book for people of any level of knowledge of Judaism from total neophyte to someone like myself who has many years of formal Jewish education.
