The great majority of photographs in this book have been taken from the archives of the Palestine Exploration Fund (PEF), an important research centre which set out to record the minutest details of the city and the surrounding area. Its work differed from that of many of the other photographers of the period who were Western Protestants and Armenian Christians, motivated by the demand among Westerners for the Jerusalem of Jesus and photographs of the Christian holy places. The PEF was not a political, religious or missionary organization but was instead motivated by the desire to record everything, from archaeological digs to the ordinary people of the city going about their daily business. Because of its unique position in Palestine, the PEF was also able to acquire collections from many different sources. As a consequence, this book has a wide variety of material, with photographs taken by local photographers and missionaries, as well as those taken by the professional photographers, motivated by the tourist trade. The Fund’s archive is therefore a remarkable compilation of photographs of Jerusalem in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and reveals the true face of the city and its people.

About the Author:

Colin Osman was editor of The PhotoHistorian journal and editor and publisher of Creative Camera. In 1989 he was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. He collected photographs and researched photographers working in Egypt for many years, and his collection includes the works of well-known and lesser-known photographers and early postcard-makers.

Review:

"Well written, compelling, and even pioneering to the extent that Romero, in his quest to protect noncitizens, seeks assistance from many and varied sources. By tempering his idealism with large doses of pragmatism, moreover, he leaves the reader feeling that while his goals are lofty, they are not entirely out of reach."
-"Perspective on Politics",

"The book is well-written, compelling, and even pioneering to the extent that Romero, in his quest to protect noncitizens, seeks assistance from many and varied sources."-"Perspectives on Politics",

"Clearly written and contains copious footnotes and an extensive and useful bibliography."-"Choice",

"An important book. Its analysis is thoughtful, detailed, and well-argued. Only over time have white ethnics, Jews, African Americans, Asian immigrants, Latino/as, Arabs and 'others' come to be accepted as equal members in a changing community. Yet we continue to believe that our national sovereignty depends on our power to distinguish between citizens and aliens. Victor Romero reveals the tension between these contradictory conceptions of the New World. The changes brought about by September 11, 2001, and the Patriot Act have made it crucial to develop principles that will allow us to survive--and thrive. Romero inspires us to be critical but optimistic. His work should be the pre-requisite to discussion of these issues."
-Frank H. Wu, Dean, Wayne State University Law School and author of "Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White"

"Victor C. Romero has done what few scholars and journalists have been able to do: he has put a human face on the tragic events of September 11, and equally importantly, on their aftermath. His important book is almost the perfect blend of doctrinal scholarship in the complex field of immigration law and social science--particularly the anthropological and sociological studies of immigrants in this alien nation. Inasmuch as he immigrated to this country, his voice has a clear and haunting pitch. He has set the bar very high for those of us who write in these areas: all of us will have to reckon with this work."
-Michael A. Olivas, William B. Bates Distinguished Chair in Law and Director, Institute for Higher Education Law and Governance, University of Houston Law Center
