A City’s Burden of Providence

By Robert Livermore

The Open Veins of Jerusalem
Edited by Munir Akash
Jusoor Books, 2005

“The Open Veins of Jerusalem,” a collection of essays, memoirs, poetry and illustrations, depicts, through the eyes of 12 authors, the occupation of Jerusalem and the subsequent Palestinian displacement and loss. The book is meant to challenge “any attempt to stake an exclusive claim on the city by situating any discussion… within a history of several thousand years rather than a few decades.”
