Abstract

This monograph covers a wide range of issues associated with Jerusalem from the treatment of Christians and Jews in the city by Islam from the 7th to the 19th centuries A.D. to the "status quo" regarding the holy places under the Ottomans, to the issues of the Western Wall (al Buraq) and the municipality under the British Mandate, to the city's de facto partition after the 1948 war, to its so-called unification after the 1967 war, to the U.S.-Israeli proposals at Camp David (July 2000) to partition the Haram al-Sharif between Judaism and Islam.
