“A good overall look at the history of the previous year through the eyes of some of the most brilliant cartoonists in the country.”
—Hollywood Inside Syndicate
The 2004 presidential election was the climax of a year filled with accusations, revelations, hope, terror, and finally, triumph for the incumbent administration. In this thirty-third annual volume, leading editorial cartoonists capture this energized year, one in which even the apolitically bent found themselves unusually motivated and engaged.
Over four hundred editorial cartoons by more than 180 editorial cartoonists present a variety of viewpoints on the ever-expansive global war on terrorism, the dramatically contested presidential campaign, the goals, successes, and failures of the Bush administration, and other domestic and international crises and achievements.
Since 1972, Pelican has presented this diverse compilation of the most outstanding editorial cartoons from publications across the country. Selected for clarity of position as well as for exceptional execution, this collection includes the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning artists, the year’s major award-winning cartoons, and the best work from Canadian cartoonists.
