These cartoons here cover not just Arab/non-Arab topics and the wars with which powermongers have plagued the Arab peoples, but also the subjects that Europeans and Americans talk about as well. However, there is a section devoted to Saddam Hussein. A drawback: though there are some acknowledgments and notes in the back, the cartoons are not dated, a serious omission for something of this nature. There is an introduction in Arabic and English, but it seems to me that there could have been more ancillary material.

A Pen of Damascus Steel includes Farzat's drawings of Saddam Hussein made during the Gulf War. These caricatures caused the Syrian regime to label Farzat as a warmonger and a supporter of the US invasion of Iraq. Shortly after the 2003 invasion, Farzat's studio was attacked by unknown assailants.

Ali Farzat is the dean of Arab political cartoonists. His caricatures do not spare wealth, influence, or power

Ali Farzat is the dean of Arab political cartoonists. His caricatures do not spare wealth, influence, or power. They give hope to the disenfranchised, the poor, and the hungry. Farzat is an authentic Arab voice who nevertheless does not hesitate to buck the tide of majority opinion. From Publishers Weekly: Of all the ways a political cartoonist can get noticed, there isn't any higher honor than being banned.

Gaudiker
The book is wonderful. The publisher gives an entire page to each cartoon, which allows the reader to fully enjoy Ali Ferzat's art and ideas.

Ferzat is a master of the powerful cartoon. His work is like Quino's. The lines are easy to follow but the ideas are bold and universal. His cartoons speak quickly and powerfully about the disenfranchised, the poor, and the oppressed. Each cartoon represents hundreds of words that are unnecessary given his style. Because of his ideas, Ferzat was nearly beaten to death by Syrian security agents in August 2011.
Realistic
This is an amazing collection of cartoons written and drawn under the most extreme circumstances. The insight and empathy that is shown for fellow countrymen and women is astounding and only goes to show the deep intellect and understanding that makes up Ali Farzat. The cartoon under 9-11depicting a psitol with a razor blade as the trigger under which sits a cut off finger is exceptional.

This just in from MEMRI - Syria is trying to prevent this book's distribution. Check out Farzat's cartoons in the Kuwaiti paper Al-Watan
Nkeiy
Ali Farzat is probably one of the greatest cartoonists in the world today. he would have got way more publicity if he was not an Arab... his work is underrated... i loved this book
