A History Of Israel And The Holy Land (FREE)
This highly informative work divides the history of the land and the nation of Israel into eight manageable segments, written by seven highly-qualified authors. The segments and authors include: The Prehistory of the Holy Land (until 3200 BC), by Emmanuel Anati; The Canaanite and Israelite Periods (3200-332 BC), by Hanoch Reviv; The Second Temple (332 BC-70 AD) Jews, Romans and Byzantines (70-633), by Michael Avi-Yonah.
In its entirety the story told here spans all of recorded history. It is a story of momentous events and mighty nations, of the birth of great religions and of foreign conquests, of longing and renewal. The scholars who have produced this work have woven an engrossing, continuous narrative out of the historical materials, presenting a rich array of peoples and cultures, from the ancient Hebrews and their neighbors down to the time of Jesus and the Roman wars and then on through the Arab and Crusader conquests, the Mameluk domination, the long period of Turkish rule, British mandate, and the rebirth of Israel. An integral part of the story is the magnificent selection of photographs illustrating the land, its sites, its ruins, and its treasures.
This expanded edition takes the story into the twenty-first century with a new and comprehensive survey of the State of Israel from its establishment to the present day. The new material includes a review of political, economic, and social developments in Israel and summaries of the country's wars and the peace process.
