"The authors suggest a stimulating cross-disciplinary engagement with Jerusalem in order to better show the multiple dimensions of the city."—Journal of Modern Jewish Studies

"This book adds much to our understanding of Jerusalem. It brings to bear interdisciplinary insights not usually available to students of the city."—Marshall Breger, Columbus School of Law, the Catholic University of America

"Jerusalem provides both breadth and analytical depth to a multifaceted subject. Its inter-disciplinary and eclectic approach captures much of the complexity of the history, culture and politics of the city. At the same time, the strong introduction and judicious editing have woven together the wide-range of contributions into a coherent whole. This is a valuable addition to the growing literature on the holy city."—Michael Dumper, University of Exeter

"Jerusalem masterfully shows that Jerusalem will continue to be the key to peace and conflict resolution until Israelis and Palestinians figure out a way to either equitably share it, or to preserve it as a non-politicized city, a capital for all believers in God. The book rightly points to the dangers of religious fanaticism and highlights how political blindness and myopia are the city’s real enemies."—Ziad AbuZayyad, coeditor of Palestine-Israel Journal of Politics, Economics, and Culture
