Soft Cover -
Jerusalem in the Twentieth Century

 

FROM OUR EDITORS

A distinguished historian recounts the political, cultural, architectural, intellectual, religious, and social history of Jerusalem over the last hundred years, documenting its extraordinary transformation from a provincial town -- an outpost of the Ottoman Empire ruled from Constantinople -- to today's vibrant, flourishing city, the capital of an independent nation and the center of worship for three world religions. Black-and-white photos.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

Jerusalem today is a vibrant, flourishing city, the capital of an independent nation, and the vital center of worship for three world religions. Yet, one hundred years ago - a mere moment in time to a city celebrating its 3,000th anniversary - Jerusalem was a provincial town, an outpost of the Ottoman Empire ruled from Constantinople. The extraordinary transformation of Jerusalem, from the twilight of Turkish rule to the advent of the twenty-first century, is an epic struggle of passionate political, cultural, and spiritual forces. Often tragic, always fascinating, the remarkable history of contemporary Jerusalem is essential to our understanding of the Middle East.
