About this book

The city of Jerusalem has a special place in the consciousness of the great monotheistic religions.

Throughout its history it has been the site of glories and catastrophes; a place that has been witness to transition and occupation by a diversity of peoples and an object of pilgrimage through the centuries.

This important work begins to provide a comprehensive outline of the amazing history of the city. It moves from the Bronze Age to the tensions of present-day Jerusalem and presents a balanced and authentic picture, that helps to correct the often distorted images of the city presented over the last fifty years.
