Description - City of Stone by Meron Benvenisti
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.
