The Invention of the Jewish People by Shlomo Sand (PDF)
The bestselling study of Jewish history Exploding the myth that there was a forced Jewish exile in the first century at the hands of the Romans, Israeli historian Shlomo Sand argues that most modern Jews descend from converts, whose native lands were scattered across the Middle East and Eastern Europe. In the process, Sand dismantles the founding myth of the Jewish homeland. This new edition, ten years after the book’s first publication in English, includes a new introduction that revisits the controversy the book continues to ignite.
