On Wings of Diesel: Trucks, Identity and Culture in Pakistan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Illustrated with beautiful colour photos throughout, On Wings of Diesel takes us on a journey through the fascinating world of Pakistani truck decoration. Ornately adorned and considered as “moving art”, these trucks—veritable roving exhibitions—depict all aspects of life and support a highly developed artisanal industry. Exploring the significance of this practice, Jamal J. Elias provides a unique window on Pakistan's comnplex society that addresses complex questions of culture and religion in a way that is both accessible and entertaining. Jamal J. Elias is Professor of Islamic Studies and Chair of the Department of Religious Studies, University of Pennsylvania. The world's foremost expert on Pakistani truck art, Elias is also a photographer who has held a number of solo and group exhibitions in the US.
