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.
The energy crisis, Watergate, and rampant inflation combined to create hard times for the average American, but a wealth of material for editorial cartoonists. Busing in Boston, nuclear bombs in India, and trouble in Britain also added to an already very eventful year. Running the gamut from scathing to sarcastic to sincere, these best editorial cartoons of 1974 feature the year's Pulitzer Prize, National Headliners Club, National Newspaper Award/Canada, and Sigma Delta Chi Award winners among its numerous contributors.
