Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Provocative, sometimes controversial, and always clever, the more than 400 cartoons by some 160 cartoonists in this collection present the sharpest political and cultural commentary on the year's major newsworthy events. Congressional politics, the war in Iraq, the Olympics, the brutal presidential campaign season, and the historic presidential election of Barack Obama provided ample fodder for the witty wiles of the country's leading cartoonists.From the energy crisis to the mortgage crisis, these cartoons span the spectrum from liberal to conservative and include contributions from outstanding artists, including the recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Headliner Award, and the Herblock Prize. As in any election year, the presidential hopefuls found themselves the objects of the cartoonists' slings and barbs, and this collection exceptionally highlights the ups and downs of each candidate's campaign, from Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin to John McCain, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama.Pelican has presented this compilation of the country's most outstanding editorial cartoons since 1972. Cleverly conceived and exceptionally executed, the pieces in this collection present a panorama of exceptional pictorial digs and gibes inked by the year's finest editorial cartoonists.

Synopsis:

Provocative and clever, these more than 400 editorial cartoons by some 165 cartoonists offer incisive commentary on virtually every headline topic of a historic year. The rancorous presidential campaign and the historic election of the country's first black president, a tumbling world economy, and roller-coaster oil prices--combined with the triumphs and foibles of the world's newsmakers--provided ample fodder for leading cartoonists everywhere. From the energy crisis to the mortgage crisis, from Barack Obama and John McCain to Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, this compilation presents pithy perspectives on the major events and personalities of the day. They are sure to delight--or perhaps infuriate--liberals, conservatives, and middle-of-the-roaders, as well as advocates of just about any point of view.

Synopsis:

One book, in fact the only one we know of, where you can enjoy the best of the year in one place. -Hollywood Inside Syndicate. A plummeting global economy, a worldwide energy crisis, and the historic election of Barack Obama as the country's 44th president were the major issues in 2008. This annual compilation of more than 400 cartoons by some 165 editorial cartoonists showcases their finest works in exploring and offering pithy commentary on a wide range of political and cultural topics. From Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to John McCain, from Joe Biden to Sarah Palin, these thought-provoking examples of the cartoonist's art span the spectrum from liberal to conservative and include the year's major award-winning cartoons.
