Selected essays by notable scholars that address practical issues of concern and offer possible solutions regarding future peace in Jerusalem.

"This collection of essays illustrates the feasibility of peace in Palestine. The editors bring together the works of notable scholars in urban planning, environmental sciences, geography, ecclesiastical and international law, and Islamic and Middle Eastern studies."
dash Library Journal

Many of the perspectives in these essays are unique and have never been published for a wider audience. Contributors consider aspects of the "politics of religion" - an issue rarely explored objectively in existing literature. Other articles propose ways of mediating the challenges of Jerusalem. In covering a range of crucial subjects, the book will appeal to Jewish and Christian audiences alike. Other primary readers include Middle East and law scholars.

Part One: Issues of Law and Politics

  • "Jerusalem in Our Time: Past, Present, and Future,"
  • "Jerusalem and the U.S. Congress," Geoffrey Watson
  • "The Role of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in a Future Permanent-Status Settlement in Jerusalem: Legal, Political, and Practical Aspects," Reuven Merhav and Rotem Giladi

Part Two: Issues of Law and Religion

  • "The Religious Significance of Jerusalem in the Middle East Peace Process: Some Legal Implications," Silvio Ferrari
  • "A New Status for Jerusalem? An Eastern Orthodox Viewpoint," Charalambos K. Papastathis

Part Three: The Temple Mount

  • "Jewish-Muslim Modus Vivendi at the Temple Mount/al-Haram al-Sharif Since 1967," Yitzhak Reiter

Part Four: Issues of Governance

  • "The Municipal Organization of the Jerusalem Metropolitan Area: Conceptual Alternatives," Shlomo Hasson
  • "Environmental Issues in the Jerusalem Metropolitan Area," Qasem Abdul-Jaber and Deborah F. Mir
  • "Living Together and Apart in Jerusalem: Lessons Learned," Bill Hutman and Amir Cheshin
