Summary
"Crossing the Green Line is about passing through checkpoints - specifically those that mark the Green Line, the geopolitical border separating the West Bank from Israel proper - and how their existence affects the daily life of West Bank Palestinians." "At the heart of the current Palestinian-Israeli struggle lies the question of territorial partition and the establishment of sovereignty within those areas." "With unparalleled access to firsthand accounts, Avram S. Bornstein explores the complex relationship between Israeli Arabs and West Bank Palestinians in the classic tradition of ethnographic inquiry and participant-observation. By describing the everyday lives of West bank Palestinians with whom he lived and worked, Bornstein reveals that Palestinian agriculture and industry have become so severely restricted by Israeli border policies that tens of thousands of Palestinians must work for Israelis, crossing the border illegally to work in Israel every day. The divide can be felt profoundly by those Palestinians forced to live in the West Bank, as their socioeconomic situations differ dramatically from those of relatives living only a few miles on the other side of the border."--Jacket
