Product description


A fittingly vast and dazzling portrait of Jerusalem, utterly compelling from start to finish (Christopher Hart THE SUNDAY TIMES )

...astoundingly ambitious and triumphantly epic history of the city (THE DAILY TELEGRAPH 20120303)

Outstanding, superbly objective, elegantly written and highly entertaining (Saul David MAIL ON SUNDAY )

Simon Sebag Montefiore's history of Jerusalem is a labour of love and scholarship... a considerable achievement... he has a wonderful ear for the absurdities and adventurers of the past... totally gripping... vivid compelling, engaged, engrossing, knowledgeable (Barnaby Rogerson THE INDEPENDENT )

Compelling and thought-provoking...Working on an immense chronological and thematic canvas Sebag Montefiore does his subject more than justice. He narrates the terrible history of Jerusalem vividly and graphically... fascinating but ghastly. (Munro Price THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH )

It is a gripping read, told with verve and fluency, and explains why Jerusalem, like a living person, has touched the heart of so many cultures, East and West, for so long (Michael Binyon THE TIMES 20120512)

...never a dull moment (David Bradbury DAILY MAIL 20120323)

Full of faith, power, slaughter and fanaticism; this is a unique chronicle, balanced and critical and wonderfully entertaining. (Chris Burgess The Examiner (Ireland) 20120303)

This is a city that has survived Hell, and Montefiore takes you to the heart of it. (James Cleary The Northern Echo 20120305)

Magnificent. (Stephen Lewis The York Press 20120310)
