He traces the migration of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt back to the Promised Land, and the conquest of the Promised Land by the Israelites, the whereabouts of the Twelve Tribes of Ancient Israel, the kingdoms of David and Solomon to BC, as well as the destruction of Jewish independence by the Assyrians and Babylonians and the subsequent deportations and dispersions of the Israelites.
Gilbert outlines the development of ancient Jewish communities in Iraq, Persia, India and China, as well as Europe, the persecutions, pogroms, expulsions and different places of settlements of the Jews throughout the world. The book deals with some lesser known facts such as the whereabouts of the Karaite Jews, 10 of whom were murdered by the Nazis in Crimea, in , the fact that in Napoleon formed a Jewish battalion that fought at Waterloo, while in the Jews of Jerusalem joined the Turks in preparing to defend the city, and in , the Jews of Russia, supported their Russian overlords against Napoleon, as they feared that Napoleon's liberalization would be a threat to their orthodoxy.
Other maps show the development of Jewish life in the Americas, Jewish millitary activity from from to , the return of the Jews to the Land of Israel, the numbers of Jews in Europe at the outbreak of World War II, and those that perished in the Holocaust, the numbers of Jews who fled Europe for Palestine, during the Holocaust, Jewish resistance against Nazis persecution in Europe, and against Arab pogroms in Palestine, and Israel's War of Independence in , the Suez War of and the Six Day war of , describing the balance on the eve of that war of Arab and Israeli forces: The total Arab strength was troops, 2 tanks and combat aircrafts, while Israel's strength consisted of troops, tanks and Combat aircrafts.
While the author is correct about persecution in Europe, of the Jews, by Christians, he underestimates and does not fully describe the many massacres and pogroms against Jews in Moslem-ruled lands, as well as the severe dhimmni status under which they lived. Nevertheless Gilbert succeeds, in illustrating the vast panorama of the Jewish people, through the ages. He makes obscure periods in Jewish history better known, if only in outline, leaving the reader the task of embarking on deeper research.

Finally the book leaves the reader amazed at the endurability of a people who survived thousands of years of hostility and attempts to destroy it, and are gathered together once again in their ancient homeland, having to defend their homeland against million Arabs, and a very large chunk of hostile world opinion.
