This review is from: Street Art and the War on Terror (Hardcover)
I stumbled across this book through the New York Times, which, after a good review, desribed it as an "invaluable document". This in part because many of the hard hitting images lasted only hours in the public domain before various state agencies (of more or less repressive regimes) covered them up. Luckily, the efforts of the book's editors provided a vehicle whereby the creators of these protests against the war in Iraq and the more nebulous "war on terror" could put their work on show globally. For anyone who marched in London against the war, or who supects there is something unsettling and coercive in the behaviour of America and its friends this is indeed an invaluable, enjoyable and absorbing record and required reminder that resistance is alive and well.
