Catalogues images of graffiti in Israel and Palestinian territories. It shows how graffiti represents the political pulse of the community, and with interviews, shows marginal voices responding to the wall separating the two regions. Based on field research conducted by the author in 2008, the book consists of a careful examination of graffiti written on both the Palestinian and Israeli sides of the Israel-built "separation wall"; and interviews with college students on both sides about the graffiti. This shows how different sides of the conflict view the conflict itself and details the various ways that graffiti can represent political strife.
