The Conservation of Jerusalem

June 1, 1993


This study, unlike the vast majority of books on Jerusalem, focuses not only on the conservation of the important religious monuments in the Muslim Quarter, but also on the living conditions and problems experienced by those living in that most neglected area of the Old City. Chapters deal with social structure and geography, undesirable features of residence, and maintenance and restoration work. A case study of the Chain Gate Road and a look at the future possibilities for improvement are also included and contribute to making this a seminal Palestinian work.
