"It has been Benvenisti's fate and gift to know the conflicting maps of both Israelis and Palestinians. This book is a learned, authoritative inquiry into those colliding worlds."—Fouad Ajami, author of The Dream Palace of the Arabs: A Generation's Odyssey

"Meron Benvenisti offers a detailed and engrossing description of the changes occurring in the Holy Land over the last one hundred years. This is a fascinating, interdisciplinary account, relying on a large number of sources, many of them unfamiliar to most observers of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Benvenisti is without question one of today's most original commentators on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."—Ilan Peleg, Lafayette University

Jerusalem Post

Equally informed by intelligence and remorse, Sacred Landscape is a passionate book that eludes easy categorization [and] represents a heroic effort to transcend derelictions of the past through its scholarly restoration.
