The Open Veins of Jerusalem

Edited and with an Introduction by Munir Akash with Fouad Moughrabi

Paper $24.95    |    0-8156-8145-3    |   2005

The first comprehensive attempt to remedy the immense injury inflicted by mainstream ideology and triumphant mythomania on the historical and present realities of Jerusalem.

"A collection of 11 essays divided into two parts, each dealing with the agonizing connection Palestinian Arabs have had with Jerusalem over the centuries. The characterization of each part is a forthright statement of the emotional appeal sought out by Palestinians from some time in the past to the present.....The Open Veins of Jerusalem is one of the better depictions of the communal values of Palestinian Arabs’ attitude toward the meaning of Jerusalem to their culture. Popularly written, it can be easily read and the impact similarly absorbed." read entire review (PDF)
Sanford R. Silverburg, Ph.D., Catawba College

"To those who are familiar with the Arab-Israeli conflict, this in-depth case study of Jerusalem serves as a comprehensive compilation of important source materials. To those less familiar with the conflict, the book provides a wealth of political and historical accounts, humanized by the series of personal testimonies and narratives. The Open Veins of Jerusalem is strongly recommended for anyone who wishes to enhance his/her understanding of why 'Jerusalem' is such an issue of controversy in today's world of politics."
