Overview

A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter examines the true history of the discord between Israel and Palestine with surprising results

Though the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict have traditionally been traced to the British Mandate (1920-1948) that ended with the creation of the Israeli state, a new generation of scholars has taken the investigation further back, to the Ottoman period. The first popular account of this key era, Jerusalem 1913 shows us a cosmopolitan city whose religious tolerance crumbled before the onset of Z ionism and its corresponding nationalism on both sides-a conflict that could have been resolved were it not for the onset of World War I. With extraordinary skill, Amy Dockser Marcus rewrites the story of one of the world’s most indelible divides.

Praise

“A richly insightful, highly readable, and acutely felt offering, one that is also critical and even handed . . . a page-turning, heartbreaking narrative.”
-San Francisco Chronicle

“Marcus masterfully brings a Jerusalem of almost a century ago to pungent life, and her political dissection of the era is lucid.”
-Publishers Weekly
