Product Description


"The granddaddy of all such compilations." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

More than 180 leading editorial cartoonists from the United States and Canada once again present their incisive pictorial commentary on the events, ideas, and personalities that captured headlines during 2002. Saddam Hussein's contrived attempts to avoid weapons inspections, President Bush's determination to hold the dictator accountable, confrontations between Democrats and Republicans, the scandal-ridden saga of Enron and WorldCom, and the relentless scourge of world terrorism provided fertile subjects for the cartoonists' art. In some 420 cartoons, this thirty-first annual edition focuses the spotlight on the winners, the losers, the movers and shakers, the builders, the bombers, the fraudulent, the scandalous--just about all who found themselves under scrutiny in the public arena. This series has been edited since 1973 by Charles Brooks, former president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and an award-winning cartoonist in his own right. Included in this edition are the winners of the year's major cartooning awards.

5.0 out of 5 stars As Usual....Excellent !!! 26 Jan. 2008
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a cartoonist for a small town newspaper somewhere in the mountians of California, every year I purchase: "Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year".

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the Gold Standard of Editorial Cartoons 18 May 2008
By David Feldstein - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Since the 1980's I have purchased this book. Each year I find it rewarding. I am disturbed at the fact that too many papers do not have regular cartoonists. They are valuable and needed. There is indeed humor, as this collection so well shows, in the foibles of our political life. If you don't have it, buy it. Better still, try to get your library to get this and past issues. It is a valuable resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistant with the past, an excellent collection 23 July 2000
By David R. Critchfield - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have almost all editions collected by Charles Brooks since 1990, and this is an excellent supplement. As before, the presentation is a diverse combination of the very best in editoral cartoons. This book presents a genuine self-examination of not only US politics but all aspects of life on Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid entry in the series. 10 Feb. 2009
By Reading Junkie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Another solid collection of political cartoons, as edited by Charles Brooks. Many of the cartoons deal with our historic election of Barack Obama as our president. Also covered are Hillary Clinton, the war in Iraq, "W," etc.

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!
