Description: This handsomely illustrated volume presents a brilliant survey of Jerusalem, touching upon every aspect of its rich and varied life as the author has studied and interpreted it. Its turbulent, multi-millenia past; its archeology and architecture; its contemporary revival and restoration; its many population groups and the pulse of its inner life with which he is intimately involved. The magnificent photographs, most of which Meir Ben-Dov took himself over a period of more than 20 years, are matched by a highly informative text tracing the evolution of each of Jerusalem's historic sites in terms both of their stones and of the men who built, destroyed and eternally rebuilt them. A feast for eye and mind.
