Description: Using a dazzling mix of history, geography, travelogue, and memoir, Amos Elon paints a richly diverse and profound portrait of a city central to both the history of Western civilization and to our world today. Drawing on the works of ancient and contemporary writers, on Biblical texts, but most of all on his own informed impressions and interpretations, Elon analyzes Jerusalem's hold on the world's imagination. Beautifully written, Jerusalem: City of Mirrors is crucial to understanding the city and conflict that engulfs the Middle East today.
