This book provides an important, first-hand and historical perspective of Jerusalem’s urban planning, written at the end of the British Mandate in 1948 by Henry Kendall, the very person who designed the last British plan for Jerusalem in 1944.  Henry Kendall speaks of the city planning of Jerusalem since British arrival from the perspective of that time and his profession, which is the understanding and reflection required for him to formulate his vision of Jerusalem urban planning in 1944.  The direct and unequivocal tone in his writing demonstrates his authority as both a Brit and THE urban planner at that time.
