Simon Sebag Montefiore
Discover the epic history of Jerusalem, the universal city that's the capital of two peoples and the shrine of three faiths. From King David to the present-day Israel-Palestine conflict, this masterful narrative explores three thousand years of faith, slaughter, fanaticism, and coexistence. Author Simon Sebag Montefiore brings this holy city to life through the people who created and destroyed it, drawing from the latest scholarship, his personal history, and a lifetime of study. This isn't just the story of Jerusalem, but the story of the world.
