Item Description: Arcade Publishing, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1997. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Some B/W Photos (illustrator). First Edition. Gift inscribed by both authors on free end page. From Library Journal The Shumskys' illuminating narrative is based on Mendel Cohen's memoirs of his tenure at the Jordanian royal court in the late Thirties and Forties and on the Shumskys' own recent visit to Jordan. From 1937 to the outbreak of the Arab/Israeli war of 1948, Cohen, a Jew born in Jerusalem, worked as a carpenter at the royal court of Emir Abdullah. The book (put together by Cohen's daughter and her husband) is a fascinating account of how these two men, with "incompatible political aspirations [and] different faiths" developed a bond that "transcended their differences." This work is cultural, historical, inspiring, optimistic, and, although simplistic, gives us much information while arousing reflection. The bibliography is highly selective but excellent. Highly recommended for Middle East collections.?Edward G. McCormack, Univ. of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast, Long Beach Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Fitting somewhere between the stories of Lawrence of Arabia and Anna and the king of Siam, this is nicely recounted by the Jewish carpenter's daughter and son-in-law, bracketed by their own pertinent observations. Actually, Mendel Cohen was more than a simple carpenter. He was a contractor to the king. Abdullah, the only Arab chief known to have talked directly with Israeli leaders, was the first ruler of Transjordan (as it was then known), an entity created shortly before the birth of Israel. Cohen, a native of Jerusalem and fluent in Arabic, was hired in 1937 by then-Emir Abdullah to refurbish his palace in Amman. Work led to friendship, and Cohen soon became familiar with the royal household and the inevitable court intrigue. Portraits of Abdullah's sons, the slow Naif and the explosive Talal (father of Jordan's present king, Hussein), the noble characters, and the wily courtiers are all drawn neatly. The stories related here range from the operation of the harem to feasts in the emir's tent, where an entire roasted camel was not an unusual entree. More than a royal backstairs expos‚, this is a thoughtful text, respectful of Arab ways and the teachings of Islam as well as the lessons of the writers' own heritage. Biblical history is felt as a current presence. The forces of enmity that finally separated Cohen and the king (in 1948, Cohen fought in the Israel Defense Force against the Arab forces commanded by Abdullah) have not abated, yet years later, visiting Amman at the invitation of Hussein, Cohen's daughter found reason in her father's experiences to hope for peace. An engaging story and a vision of friendship, seen perhaps through rose-tinted glasses, but nevertheless a rare upbeat view in a particularly dim season for Mideast peace. (8 pages b&w photos, not seen) -- Copyright 1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 042426

Item Description: Alfred A. Knopf; A Borzoi Book, New York, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. xxxiii, 650 pp. [16] pp. of plates, illus. (some col.), maps, geneal. tables; 25 cm. PRESENTATION COPY. Signed by the author on a literary society bookplate pasted onto the front free endpaper, with a personalized inscription. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Jerusalem is the universal city, the capital of two peoples, the shrine of three faiths; it is the prize of empires, the site of Judgment Day and the battlefield of today's clash of civilizations. From King David to Barack Obama, from the birth of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to the Israel-Palestine conflict, this is the epic history of three thousand years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism and coexistence. How did this small, remote town become the Holy City, the "center of the world" and now the key to peace in the Middle East? In a gripping narrative, Simon Sebag Montefiore reveals this ever-changing city in its many incarnations, bringing every epoch and character blazingly to life. Jerusalem's biography is told through the wars, love affairs and revelations of the men and women -- kings, empresses, prophets, poets, saints, conquerors and whores -- who created, destroyed, chronicled and believed in Jerusalem. As well as the many ordinary Jerusalemites who have left their mark on the city, its cast varies from Solomon, Saladin and Suleiman the Magnificent to Cleopatra, Caligula and Churchill; from Abraham to Jesus and Muhammad; from the ancient world of Jezebel, Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and Nero to the modern times of the Kaiser, Disraeli, Mark Twain, Lincoln, Rasputin, Lawrence of Arabia and Moshe Dayan. Drawing on new archives, current scholarship, his own family papers and a lifetime's study, Montefiore illuminates the essence of sanctity and mysticism, identity and empire in a unique chronicle of the city that many believe will be the setting for the Apocalypse. This is how Jerusalem became Jerusalem, and the only city that exists twice -- in heaven and on earth." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. SIGNED. Collectible.

Item Description: American Film Institute, Los Angeles, CA, 2013. Wraps. Book Condition: Very good. From Wikipedia: "The American Film Institute (AFI) is an independent non-profit organization created by the National Endowment for the Arts, which was established in 1967 when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act. The American Film Institute operated the National Film Theater in Washington, D.C. 's Kennedy Center until 1998. Prior to Kennedy Center, it screened films in the auditorium of the National Gallery of Art. In April 2003, AFI re-opened the 1938 AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, Maryland, just north of Washington. The American Film Institute was founded in 1967 as a national arts organization to preserve the legacy of American film heritage, educate the next generation of filmmakers and honor the artists and their work. The National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities recommended creating AFI to enrich and nurture the art of film in America with initial funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Motion Picture Association of America and the Ford Foundation. The original 22-member board of trustees included chair Gregory Peck and vice chair Sidney Poitier as well as Francis Ford Coppola, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Jack Valenti and other representatives from the arts and academia. George Stevens, Jr., served as director from the institute's founding until 1980. He was followed by Jean Picker Firstenberg who held the position of President and CEO from 1980 to 2007. Bob Gazzale was named President and CEO in 2007. As a national nonprofit organization, the institute funds its efforts through foundation and government grants, contributions and sponsorships from large corporations and small companies, donations from individuals and its AFI membership program. In 1969, the institute established the Center for Advanced Film Studies at Greystone, the Doheny Mansion in Beverly Hills, California. The first class included filmmakers Terrence Malick, David Lynch, Caleb Deschanel and Paul Schrader. That program grew into the AFI Conservatory, a fully accredited graduate film school, located in the hills above Hollywood, California. In addition to the Conservatory, AFI has a tuition-free program called the AFI Directing Workshop for Women that operates each spring and summer from the Los Angeles campus. Several AFI Alums have received both national and international recognition. Among the notable alumni of AFI are: Darren Aronofsky, Miguel Arteta, Jon Avnet, Keith D. Black, Carl Colpaert, Stuart Cornfeld, Patrick Creadon, Bill Duke, Rodrigo García, Steve Golin, Susannah Grant, Amy Heckerling, Marshall Herskovitz, Janusz Kami ski, Jonathan Levine, Matthew Libatique, Mimi Leder, David Lynch, Terrence Malick, John McTiernan, Edward James Olmos, Wally Pfister, Robert Richardson, Steven Rosenblum, Paul Schrader, Frank Spotnitz, Mark Waters, Gary Winick, and Edward Zwick."

They settled in a small house, where young Kai could hear church bells and the Muslim call to prayer and watch as donkeys and camels competed with cars for space on the narrow streets. Each day on his way to school, Kai was driven through Mandelbaum Gate, where armed soldiers guarded the line separating Israeli-controlled West Jerusalem from Arab-controlled East. He had a front-seat view to both sides of a divided city--and the roots of the widening conflict between Arabs and Israelis. Bird would spend much of his life crossing such lines--as a child in Jerusalem, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt, and later, as a young man in Lebanon. "Crossing Mandelbaum Gate "is his compelling personal history of growing up an American in the midst of three major wars and three turbulent decades in the Middle East. The Zelig-like Bird brings readers into such conflicts as the Suez War, the Six Day War of 1967, and the Black September hijackings in 1970 that triggered the Jordanian civil war. Bird vividly portrays such emblematic figures as the erudite George Antonius, author of "The Arab Awakening; "Jordan's King Hussein; the Palestinian hijacker Leila Khaled; Salem bin Laden, Osama's older brother and a family friend; Saudi King Faisal; President Nasser of Egypt; and Hillel Kook, the forgotten rescuer of more than 100, 000 Jews during World War II. Bird, his parents sympathetic to Palestinian self-determination and his wife the daughter of two Holocaust survivors, has written a masterful and highly accessible book--at once a vivid chronicle of a life spent between cultures as well as a consummate history of a region in turmoil. It is an indispensable addition to the literature on the modern Middle East. From Wikipedia: Kai Bird is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning author and columnist, best known for his biographies of political figures. Kai Bird was born in 1951 in Eugene, Oregon. His father was a U.S. Foreign Service officer, and he spent his childhood in Jerusalem, Beirut, Dhahran, Cairo and Mumbai. He finished high school in 1969 at Kodaikanal International School in Tamil Nadu, South India. He received his BA from Carleton College in 1973 and a M.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University in 1975. Bird now lives in Lima, Peru with his wife, Susan Goldmark, country director of the World Bank, and their son, Joshua. After graduation from Carleton, Bird received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, which enables students to do a year of independent study outside the United States. He used the fellowship to do a photojournalism project in Yemen. Two years later, Goldmark was also awarded a Watson fellowship and the two of them spent 15 months as freelance journalists traveling through Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. "We filed weekly stories with papers like the Christian Science Monitor and Hong Kong s Far Eastern Economic Review, " Bird says. "We hardly made any money, but we enjoyed what we were doing." Bird was an associate editor of The Nation magazine from 1978 82 and then a Nation columnist. Bird's biographical works include The Color of Truth: McGeorge Bundy and William Bundy, Brothers in Arms (Touchstone, 1998), The Chairman: John J. McCloy and the Making of the American Establishment (Random House, 1992) and Hiroshima's Shadow: Writings on the Denial of History and the Smithsonian Controversy (1998), which he co-edited with Lawrence Lifschultz. In April 2010, his Crossing Mandelbaum Gate: Coming of Age Between the Arabs and Israelis, 1956 1978, was released by Scribner. It is a meld of memoir and history, fusing his early life in the Arab world with an account of the American. V. Bookseller Inventory # 68325
