In the heat of an election year, candidates bantered, shook hands, and dodged the issues on the campaign trails for the White House. Sparks from the Rodney King trial set fires throughout Los Angeles as rioters took to the streets. A basketball championship led to an overtime of overturning police cars in the Windy City, while critics accused the White House of turning a deaf ear on the civil war in Yugoslavia and U.N. relief missions to Sarajevo were met by gunfire and shelling.Back at home, the rights of women were a continuing issue as allegations of sexual harassment forced resignations from the Navy, and Olympic heroes brought home world records and gold medals from Barcelona and Albertville.These are just a few of the subjects satirized, analyzed, and characterized by some of the world's top editorial cartoonists. For more than twenty years, The Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year Series has been one of the nation's most-read collections with nearly 200,000 copies in print. This latest addition to the series continues to present the best of the award-winners, the newcomers, and not-yet-famous. From the editorial page at the breakfast table to the pages of this compilation, the featured cartoons and their artists are sure to inspire and humor readers.Aimed at readers with a comic sense of history and those in the political know, The Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year Series is also a must for libraries, schools, and classrooms that teach current events. Often funny, but at times sobering, the collection of works in this latest edition recount the events of 1992 with clarity, creativity, and endless chuckles.ABOUT THE EDITOREditor Charles Brooks is past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists and was a cartoonist for the Birmingham (AL) News for thirty-eight years.
