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.

  • A 16-page photo layout showcases the authors’ meeting with David Ben-Gurion, the founder of Israel, and Golda Meir, as also scenes from the French film O Jerusalem!
  • For a whole new generation of readers, this revised and enlarged format unfolds a topical subject that contiues to impact the world.
