For students of current and historical events, political cartoons comprise a unique and revealing source of information. Greenhaven Press' Examining Issues Through Political Cartoons series makes this resource conveniently accessible to students. Each volume provides a representative and diverse collection of cartoons focusing on a particular current or historical topic, as well as contextual information to help readers to understand and appreciate them. An introductory essay offers a general overview on the subject matter. Each cartoon is then presented with accompanying information including original publication data, facts about the cartoonist, and information and commentary on the cartoon itself.
Finally, each volume contains additional research tools, including a bibliography and organization list for further research, an index, and (for historical topics) a chronology of events. Examining Issues through Political Cartoons promises to be both an amusing and informative resource for students.
"...This title is an excellent resource for history, government, and debate classes for in-depth discussions on controversial and historical issues that continue to affect many lives even today. Recommended."
