What do the Regan administration, the U.S. Budget, National Defense, the Soviet Pipeline, and the Pro-Football Strike all have in common? They’re all subjects that were up for grabs in 1982 for the nation’s leading editorial cartoonists.
Started in 1972, the series has been widely acclaimed as a concise yet far-ranging pictorial history of each year’s events. As Publishers Weekly said, it’s “a great way to get the gut feeling of a year’s history.”
The 1983 edition continues the standard of excellence established in previous editions. More than 350 editorial cartoons reflect the best work of 140 cartoonists who focused their sights on the Middle East, Poland, Latin American, Great Britain, Pope John Paul II, the economy, and an array of other issues that made the headlines in 1982.
