The Recent History of the United States in Political Cartoons A Look Bok!
History books are often sprinkled with editorial cartoons to illuminate the issues of a period of time.This is a history book of sorts, but with a twist. It is a view of the past twenty-five years through the eyes of an editorial cartoonist, with text used to illuminate the cartoons. It begins in Vietnam and the waning years of the Nixon administration, the launching point of a thousand cartoon careers, and ends in the current war in Iraq. This book looks at many issues, (the economy, military spending, race relations, religion, and culture) which have remained issues over the last 25 years and seven presidents, they simply increase and decrease over time. One of the lessons drawn from this effort is that nothing ever gets resolved. All the big questions keep coming back in one form or another, making for interesting reading.
