Jerusalem and Its Environs: Quarters, Neighborhoods, Villages, 1800-1948

This is an illustrated account of the urban

and rural development of Jerusalem from

the early 19th century when Ottoman

Jerusalem was encompassed by its sixteenth

century walls, and was divided into quarters

and courtyard units of its various religious

and ethnic groupings, to the end of the

Mandate period in the mid 20th century. The

seeds of the current situation in Jerusalem

were sown at that time. It traces the city's

interaction with its rural hinterland until the

establishment of the State of Israel in 1948

when Jerusalem was divided into two—the

Jewish quarter of the Old City and some

Jewish neighborhoods and villages were

occupied by Arabs, while Jews occupied a

number of Arab neighborhoods and villages.

The book reconstructs and analyzes processes of establishing a variety of new types of Arab Muslim and Christian, Jewish and European Christian neighborhoods—built

as community housing, extended family neighborhoods, commercial neighborhoods,

and laborers' and garden suburbs. It covers

the construction of institutional complexes,

the introduction of significant changes in

Jerusalem's administration, the creation of

new planning frameworks, the planning of

new settlements around the city, the concentration of large tracts of agricultural land by Jerusalem's Arab effendis, and the development of the Arab and Jewish villages in the rural hinterland.
