Drawn and Quartered: The History of American Political Cartoonsby Stephen Hess, Steven Hess
From the time Ben Franklin penned the first American political cartoon in 1754, cartoonists have tried to galvanize the American public's opinion for or against their subject by using caricatures and symbols that speak to our heads, hearts, and senses of humor. In the process, they have revealed truths about ourselves and our government that have been both embarassing and ennobling.
In Drawn & Quartered, authors Stephen Hess and Sandy Northrop chronicle the nation's highs and lows in an extensive collection of cartoons that span the entire history of American political cartooning. Drawn & Quartered will immediately become an important reference for anyone interested in the interplay of cartoons on politics and public opinion.
