Giglio (history, Southwest Missouri State U.) has updated the bibliography of this edition, which otherwise duplicates the original form of the 1984 text. The 253 political cartoons profiled here were each photographed from the original drawings. Introductory chapters to Truman and various parts of his presidency are followed by cartoons from each era, accompanied by a short caption.

This collection of 263 cartoons portrays the life and times of Harry S. Truman during his years in local and state offices, the U.S. Senate, and as the 33rd U.S. President. The cartoons reveal Truman's courage, tenacity, impulsiveness, frustration, stubbornness, petulanceand above all, his humanity.

Truman recognized the powerful influence on public opinion of political cartoons. He appreciated this form of free speech and collected cartoons of more than 150 artists of the period. A rare collection, these cartoons inform, entertain, and provide a prism to view Truman and his presidency.
