From Empire to Empire
Jerusalem Between Ottoman and British Rule

Abigail Jacobson

Cloth $34.95s    |    978-0-8156-3255-9    |    2011

"From Empire to Empire is an outstanding book and a significant contribution that asks new questions and does not fear to cross rigid boundaries set by previous historical works."—Insight Turkey

"The author does a very good job of analyzing the difference between Sephardi versions of Zionism versus Ashkenazi versions....I recognize the importance of this book and highly endorse it."—Amneh Badran, Journal of Palestine Studies

"Throughout the book, Jacobson illuminates our understanding of the transformation that took place, particularly within the Jewish community and in its relation to Zionism....I would highly recommend this book for classroom use as well as to readers interested in the Israel-Palestinian conflict."—Issam Nassar, International Journal of Turkish Studies

"A thoroughly original study, which transcends and questions both the rigid boundaries between the communities in Palestine, and the standard historical periodization, to provide a nuanced and clear picture of a crucial transitional moment in the history of that country. It constitutes a significant contribution to the history of both Palestine and Israel."—Rashid Khalidi, author of The Iron Cage: the Story of the Palestinian Struggle for Statehood

"Offers a refreshingly novel insight into Palestine’s modern history and its thorny inter-communal relations. Looking at Jerusalem from the multiple perspectives of its populace in times of acute crisis, it makes an invaluable contribution to Middle Eastern urban history. Any future study of Middle Eastern cities, or the impact of war on the region, will have to rely on Jacobson’s book for methodological and analytical inspiration....On the whole an exciting book and an impressive scholarly achievement."—Ami Ayalon, author of Reading Palestine: Printing and Literacy, 1900-1948
