First published in 1978, this 2008 edition brings to the limelight again the turmoil of May 1948, when the British left Palestine, and blood and fire engulfed Jerusalem. The Israeli-Arab conflict had begun and continues to hound the world today, impacting other nations and worldwide politics.
As relevant today as it was in 1948 when the conflict began, the book’s ‘newness’ lies in the intimate, heart-wrenching Preface by Dominique Lapierre, the surviving author of the best-selling duo. Hailed as an apolitical, unbiased account of living history,
O Jerusalem! traverses the partition of Palestine into two distinct States, the departure of the British, the birth of Israel, and the state of a conflict between Arabs and Jews that has since, never ceased to rage.
