Featuring cartoons from Daryl Cagle's Professional Cartoonist Index website, this work contains many cartoons covering major topics, such as from Dick Cheney shooting a guy to the invasion of Lebanon. It also includes cartoons on tainted spinach, bloated Barry Bonds, nut cases Mel Gibson and Ann Coulter, along with nukes in North Korea, and more.


Political cartoons convey ideas with a power and impact that could never be achieved with words; they tell our history as it is shouted from newspaper editorial pages, recording our feelings as America responds to the news of the day. Political cartoons have an impressive history from Ben Franklin's cartoons through hundreds of years and scores of Pulitzer Prize winners who have made our nation laugh and cry. Political cartoons have legions of fans from news wonks to Social Studies teachers throughout the country, as political cartoons are required curriculum in every state. Our books are a visual history like no other and are the premier journal of record for a great American art-form. The topics in this book include the major news stories of the year, with an emphasis on the topics that are most popular on Daryl's Web site. The chapters include topics such as: Gas Prices, Immigration Debate, Da Vinci Code, War in Iraq, Iran Nukes, Milosevic Dies, DeLay Steps Down, FEMA Follies and much more.
