Mountain Against the Sea by Salim Tamari
Book DescriptionThis groundbreaking book on modern Palestinian culture goes beyond the usual focal point of the 1948 war to address the earlier, formative years. Drawing on previously unavailable biographies of Palestinians (including Palestinian Jews), Salim Tamari offers eleven vignettes of Palestine's cultural life in the momentous first half of the twentieth century. He brings to light the memoirs, diaries, letters, and other writings of six Jerusalem intellectuals whose lives spanned (and defined) the period of 1918-1948: a musician, a teacher, a former aristocrat, a doctor, a Bolshevik revolutionary, and a Jewish novelist. These essays present an integrated cultural history that illuminates a watershed in the modern social history of the Arab East, the formulation of the Arab Enlightenment.

Books By Author Salim Tamari
Great War and the Remaking of Palestine, Paperback (July 2017)
Tells the history of Palestine during the last decade of the Ottoman Empire, which reveals the nation emerging as a cultural entity. Through autobiographies, and unpublished maps and photos, this book discerns a particular bourgeois Palestinian public sphere, self-consciously modern and inexorably secular.
Year of the Locust, Paperback (September 2015)
Captures in detail the end of the Ottoman world and a pivotal moment in Palestinian history. This book presents a picture of daily life in the besieged city.
Storyteller of Jerusalem, Paperback (December 2013)» View all books by Salim Tamari
The memoirs of Wasif Jawhariyyeh are a remarkable treasure trove of writings on the life, culture, music, and history of Jerusalem.
