A fine survey of the uses of comedy and satire in the political and social arena.,
This review is from: Revel with a Cause: Liberal Satire in Postwar America (Hardcover)
Early liberal satirists helped oppose the nation's leaders and their policies, providing an alternative to political conservatism during the 1950s and 60s: REVEL WITH A CAUSE focuses on the use of comedy and satire to prove alternative commentary and nonconforming ideas to the public. College-level students of media studies or American social issues will find it a fine survey of the uses of comedy and satire in the political and social arena.
