The Magic People, by Arland Ussher

- Abstract

There are thousands of ways of writing a book about the Jews, and most of them have already been tried. It is sad that the best-intentioned and most reliable historically are often the dullest. Perhaps one should not grumble too much then if a new and very original one—well intentioned, too—falls back at, times on some rather threadbare generalizations. At least the book is lively and interesting from start to finish.
