Chapter 39: Middle East
With vast sections of the Middle East marred by violence and struggle, many Westerners view the region as a chaotic, lawless land. Without delving into the West’s role in the chaos, most would agree that popular Western opinion of the Middle East is overwhelmingly negative, and often informed by what is covered in the mainstream media. While portions of the Middle East are embroiled in serious conflicts, the region is also home to some of the oldest and richest cultures in the world.
Guest curated by Mohammad Dagman, Frank Book Chapter 39 presents a unique view of the Middle East, with an emphasis on Arabic culture. Stories will range from a little-known though magnificent ancient city carved into rocks in Saudi Arabia, Arabic tags found on New York City streets, high-end auto technicians in Kuwait, professional athletes, poets, skaters, notable militants, and much more. Frank151 dived directly into the heart of the Arab world, providing a never-before-seen look into Arabic thought, art, literature, and trends.
