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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
I started collecting this series about 20 years ago and have even gone back and bought past issues dating back to the 70's. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Thor-Zine

...often editorial cartoons truly make us understand a certain point about a political or historical happening that we really hadn't considered. Thus they make us THINK!Published 20 months ago by Chris Wood
Really enjoy the book. It's fun going back through the year and its events. Worth keeping.
I have some years of the editorial cartoons, wish I had purchased one each year.
I buy one of these each year for the man in my life. He and his son thoroughly enjoy reading them. This one is as good as all of them have been.Published 21 months ago by Tammy L Paskach
Not edited by Charlie Brooks this year because he passed away and, in my view, not so good.
Still, worth the price to cartoon fans.
This was a gift I get someone every year, It's great!
We leave it on a table in our family room, so anyone can pick it up and laugh too.
