Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The heroism of Desert Storm, the disintegration of a once-fearsome Soviet Union, a seemingly unending economic recession, the sinking fortunes of the Bush White House, and rising hopes on the Democratic campaign trail were among the issues that fueled the pens of editorial cartoonists during 1991.Other topics targeted by cartoonists included the Senate confirmation hearings of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, peace prospects in the Middle East, a check-bouncing U.S. Congress, America's shaky financial institutions, the plight of the poor and the homeless, and the ever-growing menace of crime and drugs.All of these can be found here, weighed, measured, and commented upon by cartoonists representing every political persuasion the liberal left, the conservative right, and virtually every shading in between. Some 345 editorial cartoons drawn by more than 180 of the leading cartoonists in the United States and Canada are presented in this Twentieth Anniversary volume. This year the front cover cartoon is provided by John Trever, of the Albuquerque Journal, and the back cover cartoon is by David Swann, of the Huntsville (Ala.) Times.ABOUT THE EDITORThis edition, like the previous nineteen in this series, was compiled and edited by Charles Brooks, former president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and winner of seventeen major cartooning awards. Included are the year's major prize-winning cartoons, as well as listings of previous award winners.

Synopsis:

A must for the politically minded, history buffs, humorists, and artists, this definitive collection includes some 330 cartoons and represents the best works of 150 outstanding cartoonists from the U.S., Canada, and other nations.
