The year 1988 was a bonanza for cartoonists. The long presidential campaign led the news, culminating in the struggle between George Bush and Michael Dukakis for the White House. But that was not the only news.The Midwest drought, the Persian Gulf war, the unrest in Israel, Mikhail Gorbachev's continuing campaign for reform, the Geneva summit meeting and the INF treaty, the Seoul Olympics, and the continuing problem of AIDS all provided material for more than 330 cartoons from the pens of cartoonists in the United States and Canada.Long considered the most definitive collection of editorial cartoons, Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year: 1989 Edition is a must for the political minded, the history buff, the humorist, and the artist.ABOUT THE EDITOREditor Charles Brooks is past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and for thirty-eight years was a cartoonist for the Birmingham News.
