When Banksy started out painting the political landscape was bleak. Fortunately now, it's ten times worse. So as Banksy's cheerfully aggressive political work grows ever more relevant we take a stab at presenting his art in the context of the era he was responding to, looking at the issues his work was about.

While many other books ask dry questions such as Just who is Banksy and what makes him tick? We don't bother. We're more interested in his prolific work on the streets, which for the most part has been lost to future generations through greed or the dreaded buff. Consequently, this book seeks to concentrate on his iconic imagery spanning the past decade, from Los Angeles to Lewisham (and everywhere inbetween), including many images never before seen.
