9780863567872: Syria Speaks: Art and Culture from the Frontline

In Syria, culture has become a critical line of defence
against tyranny.

Syria Speaks is a celebration of a people determined to
reclaim their dignity, freedom and self-expression. It
showcases the work of over fifty artists and writers who
are challenging the culture of violence in Syria. Their
literature, poems and songs, cartoons, political posters
and photographs document and interpret the momentous
changes that have shifted the frame of reality so drastically
in Syria.

Moving and inspiring, Syria Speaks is testament to the
courage, creativity and imagination of the Syrian people.

A unique anthology providing a window into Syrian art and
writing since the uprising. Contributors include
internationally renowned artists and writers, such as
Ali Ferzat, Samar Yazbek, Khaled Khalifa and Robin Yassin-Kassab.

The book includes 108 colour illustrations.
