Jerusalem has for centuries been known as the spiritual centerfor the three largest monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianityand Islam. Yet Jerusalem's other-worldly transcendence is farfrom the daily reality of Jerusalem, a city bombarded by conflict.The battle over who owns and controls Jerusalem is intenselydisputed on a global basis. Few cities rival Jerusalem in how itsdivisions are expressed in the political sphere and in ordinaryeveryday life.
Jerusalem: The Spatial Politics of a Divided Metropolis isabout this constellation of competing on-the-ground interests: theendless set of claims, struggles, and debates over the land,neighborhoods, and communities that make up Jerusalem. Spatialpolitics explain the motivations and organizing around the battlefor Jerusalem and illustrate how space is a weapon in the Jerusalemstruggle. These are the windows to the world of theIsrael-Palestine conflict.
Based on ninety interviews, years of fieldwork, and numerousJerusalem experiences, this book depicts the groups living inJerusalem, their roles in the conflict, and their connections toJerusalem's development. Written for students, scholars, and thoseseeking to demystify the Jerusalem labyrinth, this book shows howreligion, ideology, nationalism, and power underlie patterns ofurban development, inequality, and conflict.
