Christian Communities in Jerusalem and the West Bank Since 1948 : An Historical, Social, and Political Study
Little has been written on Palestinian society and almost nothing on the Christian communities. This book aims to fill that gap: to portray this unknown segment of Palestinian society and to describe the rich mosaic of the religious communities in Jerusalem. The work deals with the various aspects and problems of this minority within a minority--such as emigration, integration within the surrounding society, and the Christian Churches' 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.
This work will be of interest to scholars and students in Middle Eastern studies, specifically the religious and social history of the Middle East.
