A comprehensive review of Arab Jerusalem from 1917, marking the advent of the British to Palestine, to the present day. This rich edited volume reconstructs the vibrant Arab society that was burgeoning out of the walls of the Old City at the turn of one century, and then, 100 years later, confined behind another wall and undergoing relentless attempts at erasure. It features a unique array of historical photographs.
