Book Description:
'Jerusalem Besieged is a fascinating account of how and why a baffling array of peoples, ideologies, and religions have fought for some four thousand years over a city without either great wealth, size, or strategic importance. Cline guides us through the baffling, but always bloody, array of Jewish, Roman, Moslem, Crusader, Ottoman, Western, Arab, and Israeli fights for possession of such a symbolic prize in a manner that is both scholarly and engaging.' Victor Davis Hanson, Stanford University; author of The Other Greeks and Carnage and Culture'A beautifully lucid presentation of four thousand years of history in a single volume. Cline writes primarily as an archaeologist avoiding polemic and offering evidence for any religious claims yet he has also incorporated much journalistic material into this study. Jerusalem Besieged will enlighten anyone interested in the history of military conflict in and around Jerusalem.' Col. Rose Mary Sheldon, Virginia Military Institute'This groundbreaking study offers a fascinating synthesis of Jerusalem's military history from its first occupation into the modern era. Cline amply deploys primary source material to investigate assaults on Jerusalem of every sort, starting at the dawn of recorded history. Jerusalem Besieged is invaluable for framing the contemporary situation in the Middle East in the context of a very long and pertinent history.' Baruch Halpern, Pennsylvania State UniversityA sweeping history of four thousand years of struggle for control of one city' An absorbing account of archaeological history, from the ancient Israelites' first conquest to today's second intifada. Cline clearly lays out the fascinating history behind the conflicts.' USA Today'A pleasure to read, this work makes this important but complicated subject fascinating.' Jewish Book World'Jerusalem Besieged is a fascinating account of how and why a baffling array of peoples, ideologies, and religions have fought for some four thousand years over a city without either great wealth, size, or strategic importance. Cline guides us through the baffling, but always bloody, array of Jewish, Roman, Moslem, Crusader, Ottoman, Western, Arab, and Israeli fights for possession of such a symbolic prize in a manner that is both scholarly and engaging.' Victor Davis Hanson, Stanford University; author of The Other Greeks and Carnage and Culture
