Topics range from Watergate, the energy crisis, and Americas returning POWs, to a score of other events and issues. The 375 editorial cartoons contained in this work at once biting, perceptive, and humorous represent the most outstanding examples of the art from a variety of media newspapers, magazines, television, and cartoon syndicates and reflect a broad range of political thought and conviction.

The revelations of Watergate, of course, provided a fertile field of ideas for every editorial cartoonist during 1973, and some of this years outstanding works focused upon this and related topics. Many other issues, however, also claimed the attention of the general public and of editorial cartoonists as well: the emotion-packed return of hundreds of American POWs following years of imprisonment in North Vietnamese jails; the new war in the Middle East; President Nixons battles with Congress and the press; the precedent-setting resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew; and a new trend in U. S. Supreme Court decisions concerning obscenity and pornography.

About this title

Synopsis:

Take 139 leading editorial cartoonists from the United States and Canada,
inspire their creative talents with the major political issues of 1973, and the
result is this provocative pictorial history of one of the Twentieth Century's
most tumultuous years.
This, the second volume of the series, features the graphic commentary of
virtually every major editorial cartoonist working in North America today,
including twelve Pulitzer Prize winners. Topics range from Watergate, the energy
crisis, and America's returning POWs, to a score of other events and issues.
The 375 editorial cartoons contained in this work at once biting,
perceptive, and humorous represent the most outstanding examples of the art
from a variety of media newspapers, magazines, television, and cartoon
syndicates and reflect a broad range of political thought and conviction.
Liberal and conservative, radical and middle-of-the-road virtually every
political philosophy finds expression within these pages.
The revelations of Watergate, of course, provided a fertile field of ideas
for every editorial cartoonist during 1973, and some of this year's outstanding
works focused upon this and related topics. Many other issues, however, also
claimed the attention of the general public and of editorial cartoonists as
well: the emotion-packed return of hundreds of American POWs following years of
imprisonment in North Vietnamese jails; the new war in the Middle East;
President Nixon's battles with Congress and the press; the precedent-setting
resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew; and a new trend in U.S. Supreme Court
decisions concerning obscenity and pornography.
As in the previous editions, this volume is edited by Charles Brooks,
former president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and winner
of numerous awards for cartooning excellence.
