Summary note
From the Roman occupation of Judea circa 135 A.D. to the founding of Israel, Jewish people were without a sovereign homeland. But far from eradicating Judaism, as the Emperor Hadrian desired, the Judean conquest expanded its reach, as Jewish refugees, pilgrims, and slaves scattered throughout the world, accelerating a Diaspora that had begun six to eight centuries earlier. This work is a resource on the evolution and dynamics of the Jewish Diaspora as it played out around the world--from its beginnings to the present. --from publisher description.
