Rabinovich, an Israeli Jew, presents an impressionistic and panoramic overview of this unique urban center, incorporating vignettes from a wide spectrum of the religious and ethnic community. There are a number of scenes featuring the city's mayor, Teddy Kollek; a composite portrait of both Muslim and Jewish lifestyles; and a description of the social processes of integration of the city after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. An underlying theme is that if people from two different cultures can interact on a personal level, as in Jerusalem, then there is hope that the Arab-Israeli conflict may abate. A poignant portrayal that highlights the human element in international politics. Sanford R. Silverburg, Catawba Coll . , Salisbury, N.C.
