For The Past decade -- ten eventful, epochal years -- the Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year series has become the definitive compendium of leading cartoonists' views of major national and international issues. First published in 1972, the annual series has been widely acclaimed as a concise yet far-ranging pictorial history of each year's events.

The 1982 edition continues the established standard of excellence. More than 360 editorial cartoons reflecting the best efforts of 141 cartoonists are contained herein, along with an illuminating foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Mike Peters of the Dayton, Ohio, Daily News. Peters discusses from his own experience how a cartoonist conceives the ideas for his daily work.

As in the previous nine volumes, cartoons for the twenty-five topics in this work were selected by Charles Brooks, prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Birmingham, Alabama, News since 1948 and past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Reproduced on the inside front and back covers of this volume are self-portraits of most of the cartoonists whose work appears in these pages.
