For a quarter of a century, Australian-born Oliphant has been chronicling the facts and foibles of the American presidency through his witty and incisive cartoons. To help readers better understand the art, an introduction is included that provides an overview of the history of caricature as well as a short biography of Pat Oliphant. The text is divided into six sections, each of which covers a president whom Oliphant has chronicled: Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush. While this book is a guide to the exhibit of Oliphant's cartoons and sculpture that will travel to major museums across the U. S. and overseas, it can stand independent of the exhibit. An excellent resource for contemporary American history and government classes. --Roberta Lisker, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

Credit Alan Fern with providing an especially informative Introduction to this collection. Also credit Wendy Wick Reaves with providing the narrative which accompanies the caricatures of six Presidents, beginning with Lyndon Johnson and concluding with George H.W. Bush. That said, the selections themselves really require little explanation. The subjects are immediately recognizable and Oliphant's point-of-view toward each is never in doubt. Of special interest to me is the series of color plates, of which I was previously unaware. They are assembled in a special section. (Their item numbers are 13, 28, 29, 42, 49, 57, 73, 83, and 84.) We are also provided with a series of rough but quite clever sketches, reproduced from Oliphant's notebook.Read more ›
PS: Why does amazon mandate a written review? All that does is discourage people from being able to review a product with one to five stars in case they happen to be lazy, busy or otherwise uninterested in writing a review.
