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.See all Product Description

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!
