Overview

The major awards given to editorial cartoonists recognize a host of techniques within the profession. Celebrating such accomplishments as journalistic merit, defense of basic freedoms, ethical behavior, professional integrity, and successful communication, this collection takes on major political issues. Recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, National Headliner Award, and the Herblock Prize, among others, have contributed their winning pictorial commentary for inclusion in this unique volume.

Also included in this volume is the international Ranan Lurie Political Cartoon Award, which honored its first American competitor, Robert Ariail, for his submission on rising gas prices. Other popular topics range from Barack Obama's Nobel Peace Prize to Tiger Woods' recreational activities and the Health Care Reform's red tape. Lauded for their clarity and skill, the current group of artists has used First Amendment rights to raise awareness of the state of the nation through their own points of view.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In Turnbloom's third edition of this series are over 150 opinionated cartoons assessing the state of our country and the world as life unfurled over the last year. The included artists are those who won or were nominated for 2010's major prizes for such work. (Three of the year's award winners seem not to have granted permission to include their art, but Turnbloom gives them biographical space just the same.) The organization is by prize, starting with the mighty Pulitzer (the winner won for animated work, shown in a miscellany of cells) and moving on to ten others, including an international competition. Turnbloom first briefly describes the prize, its history, and the tenets behind its selection criteria. Each cartoonist gets a short biographical sketch, lacking almost all interpretive or critical detail, plus a selection of their 2010 cartoons. The cartoons themselves, reproduced in their original color or black and white, are of course the reason to buy the book. Most, but definitely not all, come from left of center. Turnbloom provides no assessments or details to accompany each image. VERDICT Whether it's health care, Afghanistan, Wall Street, or nuclear threats, cable news junkies and lovers of caricature cartooning may well enjoy this book. The rudimentary index is only of the cartoonists' names.—Margaret Heilbrun, Library Journal
