Summary "In this volume, ASPECT once again explores new territory, entering an area so culturally conflicted that the very term "Middle East" is disputed as a holdover from colonialism. The issue presents nine artists' perspectives from both inside and outside of the region. Not only focused on the political, religious, and cultural dissent, these works ruminate on language, food, ritual, media, power, fear, humor, and beauty"--Publisher's web site.
