In LICE FOR THE GIFFORD BAILLY AWARD PRIZE Chosen as Book of the Year 2017 by the Daily Telegraph, Mail on Sunday and Observer “A Sparkling Gems of a Book” The Time of Jewish History is a Story that is on, and for all of usAnd, in our age of anguish and arrivals and applied departures, Jews, the search for a house is more surprising resonance than ever.Belonging is a beautiful cultural history abundantly alive with energy, character and colour.It stretches over several centuries and continents, from Jews”, the expulsion of Spain in 1492, it sails miracles and massacres, wandering, discrimination, harmony and tolerance; at the edge of the twentieth century and, it seems, of a point of deep hope.It tells the stories and not only of the rabbis and philosophers, but of a poetess in the Venice ghetto; a boxer in Georgian-England; a general in Ming China; a composer of nineteenth-century opera in Germany.The story unfolds in Kerala and Mantua, the starry hills of Galilee, the rivers of Colombia, Istanbul cuisine, Ukrainian taverns and California mining camps.He sails in caravels, wrinkles, stage coaches and railroads; painstakingly advances the dawn streets of London, drags himself along with the rest of Napoleon’s ruined army.By Schama’s passionate say of this second chronicle in an epic narrative, a story emerges from the Jewish people who feel it is the story of everyone, of humanity.
