9780143113287: Jerusalem 1913: The Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict

A Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter examines the true history of the discord between Israel and Palestine with surprising results

Though the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict have traditionally been traced to the British Mandate (1920-1948) that ended with the creation of the Israeli state, a new generation of scholars has taken the investigation further back, to the Ottoman period. The first popular account of this key era, Jerusalem 1913 shows us a cosmopolitan city whose religious tolerance crumbled before the onset of Z ionism and its corresponding nationalism on both sides-a conflict that could have been resolved were it not for the onset of World War I. With extraordinary skill, Amy Dockser Marcus rewrites the story of one of the world's most indelible divides.

About the Author:

Amy Dockser Marcus is a staff reporter of The Wall Street Journal. She won a Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting in 2005 for her work on state-of-the-art cancer treatments and the patients and their journey through these treatment options. Dockser Marcus is the author of The View from Nebo: How Archaeology Is Rewriting the Bible and Reshaping the Middle East and Jerusalem 1913: The Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, both of which grew out of her reporting as a Middle East correspondent for The Wall Street Journal.

From AudioFile:

The year 1913 marks the approximate time the conflict between the Jews and Palestinians began, as Zionists moved to their ancient Holy Land before WWI. The polemic subject and its history have become vital to understanding todays clashes in the Middle East. Joyce Bean takes the authors lead by making it a story about people, and her inflections make the principals seem human without giving them theatrical characters. Her motherly voice disarms a subject so controversial it has caused unending war. Because the author is a woman, one can feel Bean speaks for Marcus in a story she has worked hard to research, some from personal experience. Since much of the Jewish States beginnings arent current wisdom, listeners will feel better informed. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
