Christian Communities in Jerusalem and the West Bank since 1948: An Historical, Social, and Political Study

Synopsis

Although the Palestinian problem has been dealt with extensively by scholars, little has been written on Palestinian society and practically nothing on the Christian communities. This book aims to portray this unknown segment of Palestinian society and to describe the rich mosaic of religious community in Jerusalem. The work deals with various aspects and problems of this minority within a minority--such as emigration, integration, and the community's position within the national states of Jordan and Israel. A major section deals with the Christians during the Intifada: the extent of their participation and involvement in it, as well as their national dilemma and search for identity.
