Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

It was a year in which terrorists and despots alike-Osama bin Laden, Hosni Mubarak, and Moammar Gadhafi among them-bit the dust, while the world economy inched closer and closer to the brink. In the United States, another presidential campaign got underway, and President Barack Obama faced plummeting public approval numbers. Nations around the world struggled to deal with a growing range of problems. Leading editorial cartoonists observed these issues, along with dozens of others, and offered their own unique analysis of the people, ideas, and events behind the headlines. Liberal, conservative, middle-of-the-road-all points of view are represented here in these more than 400 of the year's best cartoons. The year also marked the end of another era. Charles Brooks, who compiled and edited every volume in this series from its inception 40 years ago, passed away as this book was being prepared. In addition to his work on all 40 volumes in this annual series, Brooks was editorial cartoonist for the Birmingham News for 38 years and served as president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.

About the Author

CHARLES BROOKS, a former president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, has edited this series since its inception in 1972. Brooks served for 38 years as editorial cartoonist for the Birmingham News, where his work won numerous national awards.

Not as satisfying as some of the earlier yearbooks in this series but that may represent a less engaging selection of cartoons and events available to include. Covers a generally broad spectrum so expect cartoons you say "right on" to and others than you find yourself wanting to tear up. Fun to remember some of the events of the year that stirred such passions (and may still do).

I get these each year for my boyfriend. He loves the news and these editorial cartoons keep him laughing all year. So far we have collected 5 of them and I plan to get one each year for the rest of our lives. Thanks for making this book!

I look forward each year for the new edition of The Best Political Cartoons of (the year). Published each year since the early 70's, the selected drawings of our political world so candidly summarize the past year. Additionally, the brilliant cartoonists who have been recognized by various institutions honoring this special field of art are cited with a brief biography of the recipient.

Charles Brooks who edited each of the previous publications, passed away this year but he will be well remembered for his enormous contribution to both the unique expressions of our history and well as the collection of talented pollitical artists whose work is so prominent. Fortunately, Amazon.com offers each new edition immediately as it is published.

I now have the complete collection of this series and will continue to look forward to each new edition. To see the foibles and faux pas of our world leaders
this annual collection is a must read. As some great man once said "Leave 'em laughing."

Format: Paperback
This 40th anniversary edition of The Year in Editorial Cartoons is a fitting tribute to its longtime editor Charles Brooks who passed away as this volume had gone to press. This 2012 edition offers a wide array of journalism's most clever and insightful cartoonists doing what they do best - lampooning the greed, hypocrisy, stupidity and craziness of everyone from society mavens and political leaders to corporate tycoons and school districts run amok. Some of the entries will make you laugh out loud and others might make you squirm. But all of these cartoons will certainly get you to thinking and make great starting points for some lively discussions!

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.
