Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tolerated in Britain for over 300 years—and ubiquitous throughout the world for much longer—visual satire gives offence in the quickest way and in its purest form. Cartoons have long since established themselves as a legitimate part of the general political discourse. As a cartoonist, it is Rowson's job to give offence. But the flip side of giving offence is, of course, giving comfort to the opponents or victims of the offended. In Giving Offence, Rowson explains how and why cartoons work, why they matter and why the reactions of the offended are often an even blunter political weapon than the cartoons themselves.

In collaboration with Index on Censorship.

About the Author

Martin Rowson's award-winning cartoons appear regularly in The Guardian, The Scotsman, The Daily Mirror, The Independent on Sunday, Tribune, Index on Censorship, The Spectator, The Morning Star and many other publications. His books include comic book versions of The Waste Land and Tristram Shandy, a novel, Snatches, and a memoir of his dead parents, Stuff and The Dog Allusion: Gods, Pets and How to be Human. He is a former vice-president of the Zoological Society of London, chairman of the British Cartoonists' Association and an honorary associate of the National Secular Society. Rowson lives in southeast London with his wife and their two teenage children.
