Calligraphy, Arabic. Summary "Whether on the freight trucks of Lebanon, along village alleyways in Bahrain, on the bullet-riddled walls of Palestine, or adorning the walls of Western metropolises and designer bags, Arabic script has experienced a revival. Graffiti writers are increasingly experimenting with calligraphy on walls, and young designers are creating new fonts and type designs in books, galleries and public spaces.
At times, Arabic graffiti voices the suffering of a nation, while in other contexts it serves as a quest for identity.
In addition to a rich assortment of photos featuring Arabic graffiti and street art styles, it includes essays by distinguished authors and scene experts, in which they explore the traditional elements, modern approaches, and the socio-political and cultural backgrounds which have shaped Arabic graffiti movements in the Middle East.

For example, the book claims many thing about the Bahraini street such us their loyalty to some non-Bahraini Islamic public fingers.
Which is not accurate because in fact the Bahraini street itself is made up by a mixture of opinions and arts. As a result, the book lost it credibility for me after reading the text.

However, while grafitti is innately connected to politics and expression, some contributing writers spend too much space ranting on the political situation as they perceive it singling out William Perry in particular to the point where the essay becomes a political screed with nary a mention of the art at all for long stretches.
