Lebanese artist Walid Raad has been a powerful voice in art for some time, but the substance of his work has only recently received international acclaim. This comprehensive catalogue companion to the recent groundbreaking exhibition of the artist's work at New York's Museum of Modern Art is testament to this increased attention on his work.

Featuring spectacular examples of Raad's art alongside in-depth analysis, this volume regales the reader with the ways in which Raad explores his Middle Eastern heritage through his work and questions the role of war in representation, art, and culture. The narrative takes the reader back to Raad's artistic beginnings in Lebanon in the 1960s and continues to some of his most recent projects.
