Old City of Jerusalem comes to life in Matthew Taylor’s biography

Matthew Taylor’s name is synonymous with the Middle East. For nearly three decades, the British journalist and broadcaster has written and produced documentaries from the Arab world, Israel and the Palestinian territories. He also authored the definitive Jordan travel guide. In “Nine Districts of Jerusalem: A New Biography of the Old City,” he talks about a world-famous but little-known city: Jerusalem.

Mr. Teller recently spoke with Monitor about why he thinks the people of Jerusalem are neglected, and how the Old City’s multiculturalism, denominations, languages ​​and traditions ignore its “household.”

Why do you care about the people of Jerusalem, not the place of worship?
