The 2008 edition is aother outstanding volume, and full of wonderful political insight from the year 2007. This series spotlights the best of the best, and they are here: Walt Handelsman, Jimmy Margulies, Mike Peters and Dick Locher. Over 100 other great cartoonists are featured in the pages of this book, and I cannot recommend this series highly enough. This is the Bible of the very best political cartoons of the year, and it is as entertaining as it is educational.
Subjects included in this 2008 edition include: The Presidential Campaign, The Bush Administration, The Economy, Crime and Entertainment. From Dick Cheeney to Britney Spears, nobody is safe from the wrath of these cartoonists. The Iraq War, gas prices and immigration are all under attack in the pages of this book.
From 1972 to 2008; "The Best Editorial Cartoons Of The Year" are THE books on this subject. And if: "The Daily Show" is must-see viewing in your home, this book belongs on your bookshelf as well.
FIVE STARS !!!
I recomend this book for all who have an open mind. JBC
My only complaint? I wish there would be more cartoons present in these books. I love editorial cartoons, and this book could be double the size and I'd still want more!
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."

This is the best of this highly likeable series IMO. It was hilarious, and exposed all of the important 2012 "Election Year" & more activities . Read morePublished on October 30, 2013 by Lloyd SoCal
...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 on October 27, 2013 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 on October 6, 2013 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.
