  • Description

    The epic story of Jerusalem told through the lives of the men and women who created, ruled and inhabited it.

    Jerusalem is the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three faiths; it is the prize of empires, the site of Judgement Day and the battlefield of today's clash of civilisations. From King David to Barack Obama, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to the Israel-Palestine conflict, this is the epic history of 3,000 years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism and coexistence.

    How did this small, remote town become the Holy City, the 'centre of the world' and now the key to peace in the Middle East? In a gripping narrative, Simon Sebag Montefiore reveals this ever-changing city in its many incarnations, bringing every epoch and character blazingly to life. Jerusalem's biography is told through the wars, love affairs and revelations of the men and women - kings, empresses, prophets, poets, saints, conquerors and whores - who created, destroyed, chronicled and believed in Jerusalem. As well as the many ordinary Jerusalemites who have left their mark on the city, its cast varies from Solomon, Saladin and Suleiman the Magnificent to Cleopatra, Caligula and Churchill; from Abraham to Jesus and Muhammad; from the ancient world of Jezebel, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and Nero to the modern times of the Kaiser, Disraeli, Mark Twain, Rasputin and Lawrence of Arabia.

    Drawing on new archives, current scholarship, his own family papers and a lifetime's study, Montefiore illuminates the essence of sanctity and mysticism, identity and empire in a unique story of the city that many believe will be the setting for the Apocalypse. This is how Jerusalem became Jerusalem: the only city that exists twice - in heaven and on earth.

    Jerusalem - to the Jews ( not Israelite) or to the Philistines (Palestine) ?

    Certainly a hot bed and the Jews and the Palestine rubbing each other over a volcano which is bubbling beneath. Depicted by the author with authoritative documentation and led to scary feeling Armageddon is around. From the biblical times Jerusalem ( whether of the Temple Mount or the Dome of Rock ) is a fascinating place - a land of paradox, even Abraham Lincoln, amidst the civil war in his land, had wanted to visit the place ! A forceful beginning to end read .

    Wonderful

    This is one of the most authentic books on Jerusalem's chequered history available in the market. Though, one must remember that the author has a pronounced right-wing tilt, hence a completely balanced view can not be obtained. Moreover, this is not exactly on Israel Palestine conflict or an analysis, but more of a record of facts. Still, it's a must have book for those who have strong interest in world politics.
