From the Publisher

The Cultural Atlas series combines intellectual depth and visual richness as it distills and synthesizes an enormous amount of information. Weaving together geography, history, archaeology, anthropology, architecture, the arts, and more, these handsomely designed, interdisciplinary volumes encompass the entire physical and cultural world of each civilization, evoking its unique spirit and vitality.

Delight the Eye, Inform the Mind

Designed to appeal to both the serious student and the more casual reader, the Cultural Atlas series is written with authority and clarity. Panoramic in scope, these volumes provide an overview of places and peoples through the centuries and are illustrated throughout with hundreds of striking and informative photographs and drawings.

Each volume is divided into three key sections:
-- Geographical/ethnographic background
-- Cultural history
-- A tour of present-day regions.

Weaving maps, photographs, and illustrations with an engaging and balanced text, this volume looks at the diversity of Jewish life around the world from ancient to contemporary times.
