This is a fantastic book - great history of cartooning, and wonderful political cartoons. The cartoons included in this large volume serve as an excellent first-hand view of life in the first half of the 20th century. Text is well-researched and readable - cartoons are plentiful, of an interesting variety and styles, and very funny. ( )

First words
Editor's Note: The first consideration, in selecting the illustrations for this book, as I have pointed out in the text, was that the drawing must be funny.
I have always thought that the Americans are the funniest people on earth: the writers, Josh Billings, Artemus Ward, Mark Twain, Eugene Field, Bill Nye, Finley Peter Dunne, Ring Lardner, H. L. Mencken, Will Rogers, and Fred Allen; the artists, Opper, Sullivant, "Zim," McCutcheon, Kemble, Powerts, Art young, "Tad," Steig, Arno, and George Price; and the cockeyed comedians, of vaudeville, screen, and radio.
