Belonging: The Story of the Jews 1492–1900

Серия: "-"

Belonging is a 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 and 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 story 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.

SCHAMA, SIMON (1945– ), British-American historian. Schama was educated at Cambridge University, where he taught from 1966 to 1976. He subsequently taught at Oxford and then in the United States, where he became a professor at Harvard and, later, Columbia University. He wrote important works on Dutch history, such as Patriots and Liberators: Revolution in the Netherlands, 17801813 (1977) and An Embarrassment of Riches: An Interpretation of Dutch Culture in the Golden Age (1987), as well as a bestselling account of the French Revolution, Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution (1989). Schama also wrote widely on art, in such works as Rembrandt's Eyes (1999), and was the art critic of The New Yorker magazine in 1995–98. He is probably best-known for the 16-part history of Britain he made for the BBC, which was watched by millions of viewers and became a bestselling three-volume work, A History of Britain (2000–3). Schama also wrote on Jewish history, The Rothschilds and the Land of Israel (1978). (William D. Rubinstein (2nd ed.)
