Jerusalem Throughout the Ages


Jerusalem is like no other city on earth. It is holy to the world's three major monotheistic religions, and was fought over for three millennia by a variety of peoples and nations. Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel and of the Jewish people, but, in a special sense, Jerusalem belongs to the entire world. In 10 volumes written by experts on each period, this series presents the 3,000-year history of Jerusalem from its beginnings through the establishment of the State of Israel, and examines physical, economic, social, political, religious and cultural aspects.
