The City of Abraham is a journey through one of the world's most divided cities - Hebron, the only place in the West Bank where Palestinians and Israelis live side by side. It begins with a hill called Tel Rumeida, the site of ancient Hebron, where the patriarch Abraham - father of the Jews and the Arabs - was supposed to have lived when he arrived in the Promised Land. Platt tells the history of the hill and the city in which it stands, shares the stories of residents and settlers, and illuminates the mythic roots of the struggle to control the land. Through a mixture of travel writing, reportage and interviews, The City of Abraham explores the ways in which Hebron's past continues to inform its tumultuous present.
