Herblock Special Report Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The political cartoons of Herblock (Herb Block's pen name) are the standard by which all other editorial cartoons are measured. A true American institution, Herblock has been satirizing the powerful, the smug, and the hypocritical for more than fifty years. Herblock is filled with the wit, candor, and cartoons that have earned their author many awards, including the Franklin Roosevelt Freedom Medal.

From coining the term McCarthyism to cartoons attacking racism, Herblock has played an integral role in our times. Here he turns his thoughts and pen on Nixon, Watergate, Vietnam, the civil rights struggle, Iran-Contra, and much more. This trade-paper edition includes a new chapter on the tumultuous Clinton presidency and the Gingrich Congress, and thirty new cartoons.

Synopsis:

"A rare and insightful book on the Nixon career from shifty California congressman to criminal-but-pardoned ex-president by the man who battled him from a drawing board for twenty-six years--and won. In 450 pungent cartoons accompanied by a witty, wry text, the nation's No. 1 cartoonist has produced a unique history that lays out the whole Nixon record." --Tom Engelhardt, St. Louis

Synopsis:

This book obviously does not set out a complete record of the Nixon scandals or of the Nixon career. It doesn't even include all the cartoons about Nixon or relating to him--which probably number more than those Block did on almost any other public figure (good or bad), including such long-in-the-limelight persons as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin. It does include a large number of the Nixon cartoons, along with dates of some incidents, and comments and recollections about their subject--a political career which in some way has affected all of us.
