For Christians and Muslims alike, Jerusalem is an architectural wonder. It is also a living, vital city whose accomplishments in mass housing, public monuments, private dwellings, and urban planning rival those of the venerated past. This book is the first complete one-volume survey of architecture in Jerusalem, beginning with the vestigial remains of the First Temple Period, the Roman and Byzantine eras, the arrival of Islam, the Crusader Kingdom, the Mamluks, and the Ottomans. For Jerusalem, the modern age began in the mid-nineteenth century with the first vigorous surge of new building since the 1600s, when Suleiman the Magnificent had the city fortified with the splendid circuit of high crenelated walls that give Jerusalem its legendary fairy-tale look. Written by a leading Israeli preservationist and architectural historian, under the auspices of the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies, this invaluable book comes fully illustrated, with a brilliant array of maps, drawings, and photographs, hundreds in color and most of them specially commissioned.

Author Biography: David Kroyanker has been deeply involved in his native city since 1968, especially in the renovation, reconstruction, and revitalization of buildings and neighborhoods.
