Events of 1988 once again provided a bonanza for editorial cartoonists everywhere. The presidential campaigns led the news, while the Persian Gulf war, continued unrest in Israel, Mikhail Gorbachev's campaign for reform in the Soviet Union, the Geneva summit meeting, and the growing threat of AIDS also provided inspiration for the 329 cartoons in this volume. For seventeen years the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year series has been an important and entertaining review of the year's events. In this edition, more than 160 cartoonists express a variety of incisive views on a broad range of topics. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, the cartoons in this volume provide a pictorial history of 1988.
