Summary

The history of Jerusalem is the history of the world, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to the American Century. Now the author of the acclaimed Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar presents a grippingly original epic history of Jerusalem through the lives of those who created, destroyed, conquered, wrote about-and believed in-the Holy City. Here are all the key players in a vast, thrilling, and intimate panorama that brings every epoch and titan blazingly to life, from King David to Jesus and Muhammad; from Maccabees and Herods to Churchill and Barack Obama; from Cleopatra, the Caliphs, and Saladin to Mark Twain and Rasputin; from Dayan, Arafat, and King Hussein to the author#x19;s ancestor, Sir Moses Montefiore, who founded the new city of Jerusalem 150 years ago. Drawing on new archival materials, the latest scholarship, his own family papers, and a lifetime#x19;s study, Montefiore illuminates the essence of holiness, power, empire, and the only city that exists twice-in heaven and on earth.
