This collection of essays is an exceptional introduction to the political philosophy of Dr. Seuss through analysis of some of his most beloved work. This inquiry presents a way of understanding our society, our government, its policies and how we have evolved and progressed as a nation as seen through the eyes of one of America's most superb cartoonists and one of its greatest writers of contemporary children's literature.

About the Author:

Dr. Earnest N. Bracey is a Professor of Political Science in the Department of Social Sciences at the College of Southern Nevada. He received his Ph.D. in Education from Capella University. He also received his Doctor of Public Administration (emphasis in Public Policy) from George Mason University.

Review:

"Bracey argues for Seuss to be read as a primarily moral or even didactic writer, and one who often combines both a pragmatic and utopian Vision in his exploration of "the link between human rights and human governance"... [it] serves as a useful introduction to non-specialists who may be interested in the wide-ranging political and social implications behind some of the renowned children's author's most popular works." -Dr. David Buehrer, Valdosta State University.
