Galut is Hebrew for exile. Since the dispersion of the Jews from Palestine, the Jewish people have considered exile to be a basic tenet of their historical existence. The author, an eminent Palestinian historian, introduces students of Judaic history to the outstanding Jewish spokesmen who throughout the centuries have reflected on their people's condition in exile, among them Judah ha-Levi, Maimonides, Isaac Abravanel, Baruch Spinoza and others.
