9780521440462: To Rule Jerusalem (Cambridge Cultural Social Studies)

Twentieth-century Jerusalem is doubly divided. It is a holy site for both Judaism and Islam. Additionally, secular Israelis and Palestinians alike ground their respective national identities within the city, sharing it with each other and with those of their own faith who yield to a higher divine law rather than a secular democratic one. To Rule Jerusalem is a historical and ethnographic account of how Jerusalem has become the battleground for conflicts both within and between the Israeli and Palestinian communities. Based on hundreds of interviews with powerful players and ordinary citizens over the course of a decade, this book evokes the ways in which struggles are experienced and managed in the life of the city. To Rule Jerusalem is a forceful study of the intertwining of religion and politics, exploring the city as simultaneously an ordinary place and an extraordinary symbol.

Book Description:

To Rule Jerusalem is a historical and ethnographic account of the twentieth-century struggle for Jerusalem. The volume examines how Jerusalem is doubly divided. On the one hand conflict exists between Israelis and Palestinians, each of whom ground their national identities in the city. On the other, conflict exists within each nation, between Zionism and Judaism on one side and between Palestinian nationalism and Islam on the other. Based on hundreds of interviews this book evokes the ways in which these conflicts are experienced and managed in the life of the city.

From the Back Cover:

To Rule Jerusalem is an historical and ethnographic account of the twentieth-century struggle for Jerusalem. The volume examines how Jerusalem is doubly divided, on the one hand between Israelis and Palestinians, both of whom ground their national identities in the city, as well as within each nation between those who put primacy in the democratic decisions of their nations and those who would yield to a higher divine law. Roger Friedland and Richard Hecht explore how Jerusalem has figured as a battleground in conflicts over the relation between Zionism and Judaism and between Palestinian nationalism and Islam. Based on hundreds of interviews with powerful players and ordinary citizens over the course of a decade, this book evokes the ways in which these conflicts are experienced and managed in the life of the city.
