Migrating northward from South and Central America more than a hundred years ago, this strange-looking animal can be readily identified by its tough, scale-like coat of armor, elongated snout, and its propensity for doing battle with eighteen-wheel vehicles on America's highways. Despite its lemming-like compulsion for self-destruction, the armadillo survives in large numbers and, as this volume duly records, continues to impose its presence on modern society. Paperback.
The syndicated editorial cartoonist of the Gazette Telegraph (Colorado Springs) expresses outrage at the assaults on our freedom, at the loss of liberties, and at the destruction of the very fabric of our society.
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 third volume of this acclaimed series offers a sobering look back at the history-making events of 1974. Often humorous, sometimes poignant, and always interesting, these cartoons are guaranteed to tickle your funny bone and tug at your heartstrings as you turn the pages.
