Description
(Jewish Book Council Book of the Year) The British historian who gave us Young Stalin (which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Biography, the Costa Biography Prize, and Le Grand Prix de Biographie), Simon Sebag Montefiore here portrays Jerusalem as the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three faiths. From the Old Testament to the 21st century, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Montefiore describes 3,000 years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism, and coexistence through the lives of those who created and destroyed it—including King David, Herod, Cleopatra, and Nero to Rasputin, Churchill, and Truman—as well as his own family history and a lifetime of study.

"Montefiore's towering biography of the city relates in fascinating, horrific and sometimes comical detail the wars to annex its symbolic sanctity and the daily lives of its inhabitants. This monument of scholarly research is also a compelling story: of human foibles, lust, bravery and chicanery."—Times (London)
