Far reaching, intellectually rich, and passionately written, Unsettledtakes the whole history of Western civilization as its canvas and places onto it the Jewish people and faith. With historical insight and vivid storytelling, renowned anthropologist Melvin Konner charts how the Jews endured largely hostile (but at times accepting) cultures to shape the world around them and make their mark throughout historyfrom the pastoral tribes of the Bronze Age to enslavement in the Roman Empire, from the darkness of the Holocaust to the creation of Israel and the flourishing of Jews in America. With fresh interpretations of the antecedents of todays pressing conflicts, Unsettledis a work whose modern-day reverberations could not be more relevant or timely.

Melvin Konner is the Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Anthropology and an associate professor and neurology at Emory University. A Fellow o f the American Association for the Advancement of Science, he lives in Atlanta.
