One would be hard pressed to find a city that can compare to Jerusalem in age and religious importance. More than a city, Jerusalem is a symbol, a holy place, and center of pilgrimage. Its history has been and continues to be unsettled, with current events in the Middle East keeping it in the news. In 1996, 40 scholars gathered in Jerusalem to discuss the city itself. They considered how Jews, Christians, and Muslims shaped the city physically, politically, and socially when each ruled it. Levine (Hebrew Univ. of Jerusalem) provides the 33 papers presented at the conference. Timely, interesting, and, challenging, this scholarly but nonetheless readable book will be welcome in academic and public libraries.?John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
