Overview

History books are often sprinkled with editorial cartoons to illuminate the issues of a period of time. This is a history book of sorts, but with a twist. It is a view of the past twenty-five years through the eyes of an editorial cartoonist, with text to illuminate the cartoons. It begins in Vietnam and the waning years of the Nixon administration, the launching point of a thousand cartoon careers, and ends in the current war in Iraq. This book looks at many issues, (the economy, military spending, race relations, religion, and culture) which have remained issues over the last 25 years and seven presidents, they simply increase and decrease over time. One of the lessons drawn from this effort is that nothing ever gets resolved. All the big questions keep coming back in one form or another, making for interesting reading.

Meet the Author

Chip Bok’s career as an editorial cartoonist began in seventh grade math class. While attempting to draw figures in the eccentric style of Mad Magazine cartoonist Don Martin, he realized that he had inadvertently drawn President Lyndon Johnson. His new calling led him to the University of Dayton, cement work, wholesale drug sales, newspapers in Florida, computer graphics, and, since 1987, the Akron Beacon Journal. His award-winning cartoons have since been reprinted all over the world. He often ponders the road not taken, Zamboni driver, while watering his backyard hockey rink on long winter nights at his home in Akron, where he lives with his wife, Deb, and the two youngest of their four children.
