Teddy Kollek and Moshe Pearlman
Jerusalem, with a recorded history of some 4,000 years, has been more familiar to more people for a longer period than any other place on earth. This book captures that drama and flavor in its story of Jerusalem from earliest times to teh present day -- right up to the re-unification of the city in the Six Day War of June 1967. Jerusalem is richly illustrated, in color and black-and-white, with both ancient engravings and maps and magnificent photographs of the city and its holy places specially taken for this book. One of the authors, Teddy Kollek, became the first mayor of re-united Jerusalem.
