by John M. Allegro, Doubleday, 1971
Though I'm not going to write one of my often too long reviews, I do want to say that this is one of the best books I've come across for understanding early Judaic history and the related Zionist/Zealot movements.
One of Allegro's more important works, it provides a very detailed history of the Jewish revolts, their Babylonian foundations, the origins of the House of Rothschild, Rome's final destruction of Jerusalem in 70 C.E. after tireless uprisings, the racism that permeates this exclusive religion and indemnifies its members (and how anyone who points out this blatant fact is quickly labeled as racist or 'anti-Semitic'), its new world government zeal - with the racial purification of the homeland and rebuilding of the temple mount for their god's ultimate return.
Allegro has provided a very concise anthology of the Judaism - aiming no less deadly on the religion than he did on Christianity in The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross.
This is part of Allegro's continued study on entheogen use in early Judeo-Christianity that began with the Sacred Mushroom and the Cross, and continued with The End of a Road, Lost Gods, The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Christian Myth, and Physician, Heal Thyself...
Absolutely essential reading for anyone who wants to understand global politics today. Absolutely essential for any ethnopharmacology or religious studies library.
