Ruth Kark and Michal Oren-Nordeim trace the citys interaction with its rural hinterland until the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, when Jerusalem became socially and geographically divided in two. The authors explain how Arabs eventually occupied Jewish quarters and neighborhoods and Jews ultimately settled in Arab Muslim and Christian neighborhoods.

By examining a variety of primary sources -- documents in the Central Zionist Archives, published memoirs, maps, and aerial photographs -- the authors are able to establish and verify connections between the documentation and the actual sites.

The detailed examples documenting specific quarters and neighborhoods and the numerous maps, plans, and photographs make this volume invaluable to researchers, teachers, and students of geography, urban planning history, Middle East and Jewish Studies, as well as Palestinian residents of the Old City and the new Muslim neighborhoods.
