JERUSALEM JERUSALEM by James Carroll

Written by eastern writer on Friday, February 18, 2011

this title will publish in March by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt


Jerusalem Jerusalem is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the current disharmony of modern-day Jerusalem and its historical underpinnings.


James Carroll, author of the award-winning, bestselling Constantine’s Sword, tells the richly layered story of the city of Jerusalem and its extraordinary impact on human history and contemporary conflict. He shows how the seemingly never-ending conflicts within this city that is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews underscore an important point of history: religion and violence fuel each other. Daily life in Jerusalem is a microcosm of division and dispute, rivalry and tribalism as a myriad of groups and belief systems are pitted against each other: ultra-Orthodox Jews and secular Jews; Israelis and Palestinians; Jews and Arabs; Muslims and Christians; Hamas jihadists and Fatah bureaucrats; Russian immigrant Israelis and native-born Israelis; Latin Catholics and Greek Orthodox; and, overall, modernity and tradition.

Jerusalem Jerusalem is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the current disharmony of modern-day Jerusalem and its historical underpinnings.


To the standard set by Constantine’s Sword, Jerusalem, Jerusalem is again a “rare book that combines searing passion . . . with a subject that has affected all our lives” (Chicago Tribune).

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're using? I've loaded
    your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a fair price?

    I'm new to developing internet sites and I was wondering if having your blog title related to your articles and other content really that vital? I see your title, "Blogger: The Greatest Literary Works " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of help would be greatly valued.

    Hi! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I am completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my
    journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
