Shlomo Sand argues that most Jews actually descend from converts, whose native lands were scattered far across the Middle East and Eastern Europe. The formation of a Jewish people and then a Jewish nation out of these disparate groups could only take place under the sway of a new historiography, developing in response to the rise of Western nationalism. An iconoclastic work of history, The Invention of the Jewish People proposes a bold analysis of nationalism that accounts for the old myths, and provides the intellectual foundations for a new vision of Israel’s future.
