Jerusalem is more than a holy city built of stone. The domain of Muslims, Jews, and Christians, Jerusalem is a perpetual contest; its shrines, housing projects and bulldozeers compete in a scramble for possession. Meron Benvenisti presents an integrated history of the city that avoids any one version of its past. He makes it clear that all of Jerusalem's citizens have enriched the Holy City in the past, and it is Benvenisti's belief that they can also do so in the future.

About the Author

Meron Benvenisti is a former Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem and the author of numerous books, including Conflicts and Contradictions (1986) and Intimate Enemies: Jews and Arabs in a Shared Land (California, 1995).


"Benvenisti brings . . . a rare attachment and authority. He seems familiar with every rock, every problem, every denizen, and he ranges with engrossing ease between yesterday and biblical times."--Serge Schmemann, "New York Times Book Review
