Summary
Award-winning journalist and author Nir Baram spent a year and a half travelling around the West Bank and East Jerusalem. In this fascinating recount of that journey, Baram navigates the conflict-ridden regions and hostile terrain to speak with a wide range of people, among them Palestinian-Israeli citizens trapped behind the separation wall in Jerusalem and Jewish settlers determined to forge new lives on the West Bank. Baram also talks to children on Kibbutz Nirim who lived through the war in Gaza, and ex-prisoners from Fatah who, after spending years detained in Israeli jails, are now promoting a peace initiative. And he returns again and again to Jerusalem, city of his birth, where a hushed civil war is in full swing. A Land Without Borders is a clear-eyed, compassionate and essential guide to understanding a complex reality; a perceptive and sensitive exploration of a labyrinthine conflict and the experiences of the people ensnared in it, by one of the most distinctive writers working in Israel today

Summary
Throughout their youth Nir Baram’s generation were bombarded with news about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict - the injustices, the wrongdoings, the killings. Over the decades, the horror and despair had become habit he noticed people had begun to give up on the possibility of resolution. Yet, as Baram notes, the vast majority of Israelis as well as international onlookers know next to nothing about life on the West Bank, the area at the heart of the conflict they have spent their adult lives dissecting. Most have never visited the occupied territories, and thus the debate revolves around a theoretical, ill-defined area sketched out in our political imagination. This book of reportage emerged from the author’s realization that Israel is separated from the West Bank not only by checkpoints but also, more significantly, by a cognitive barrier. And so began his quest to understand the occupation from both sides
