Karen Barkey and Elazar Barkan have brought together well-known scholars in their fields to explore the phenomenon of shared sacred sites in places such as Turkey, Bosnia, Algeria, Israel and Cyprus.

By focusing on the sharing of these sacred spaces- such as the west bank, cemeteries, and even museums- and the intersection of identity, culture, and politics, instead of on violent confrontation, these essays allow for a more complex and engaged understanding of these spaces and interactions.

The debates in this volume explore what "coexistence" really means and the systems of politics and policy that have grown up in this frame, providing insight into patterns of social and political behaviour and policy.
