Meron Benvenisti

2000 Albert Hourani Book Award Honorable Mention

Sacred Landscape: The Buried History of the Holy Land Since 1948, provides an account, at once scholarly and intensely personal, of the transformation of an Arab Palestinian landscape into an Israel, Jewish one. While deeply sensitive to the perceptions of both Israelis and Palestinians, Benvenisti does not withhold judgment in dealing with literal and metaphoric terrain that remains sharply contested.
