For the past decade—ten eventful, epochal years—the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year series has become the definitive compendium of leading cartoonists’ views of major national and international issues. Started in 1972, the series has been widely acclaimed as a concise yet far-ranging pictorial history of each year’s events. As Publisher's Weekly
said, “it’s a great way to get the gut feeling of a year’s history.”
The works of nine Pulitzer Prize winners are featured in “Best Editorial Cartoons of 1972.” Edited by Charles Brooks, past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists, the 160-page hardcover volume provides a pictorial history of the year’s top news events as seen by 110 editorial cartoonists from throughout the Unitd States and Canada.
The book inludes the editorial cartoons selected as winners of the Pulitzer Prize and the Sigma Delta Chi and Headliner Awards for the previous year.
