The terrorist attack of September 11—one of history’s blackest days—shook America to its core, but at the same time galvanized an aroused nation to action. Leading editorial cartoonists capture in this volume that swift response—the horror, the grief, the pain, the unity, and, finally, the resolve to crush the scourge of terrorism wherever it exists—with a section in this year's edition devoted to the terrorist attack on America. Paperback Original.
This year’s edition, covering the events of 2002, features cartoonists’ commentaries on all the major news events of the year: George Bush’s preparations for war against Saddam Hussein, the worldwide struggle to combat terrorism, the battle for control of the U.S. Congress, the sentencing of former Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh, and an economy that continues to sputter. Together, whether individual cartoons stand as a biting retort or to rouse support, these assembled cartoons present a view of 2002 that is incisive, memorable, and, more often than not, humorous.
