Jerusalem contains a witness that has been given to very few cities in history. In the past century, the occupation of Jerusalem and the problems of the Islamic World have progressed in parallel. This situation requires a multidimensional evaluation with its intellectual, geographical, socio-cultural and economic components, beyond being an issue that only awaits a political solution.
Jerusalem studies are getting richer day by day. Uncovering the social and spatial remnant of the ancient city and producing the scientific archive against the destruction of Jerusalem by reduced interventions to the nation ideology is seen as an indispensable prerequisite for these researches.
The book in your hand has been prepared with the aim of contributing to the expanding Jerusalem Library in Turkey. In the book, a versatile Jerusalem perspective is presented through original studies that evaluate Jerusalem in terms of its historical, cultural, urban and architectural dimensions and address the Jerusalem issue from the perspective of international law.
