Combine the wit and insight of more than 130 leading editorial cartoonists from the United States, Canada, and Latin America with the headline-making events of a year filled with contro
versial issues, and the result is this provocative volume of prickly satire and social commentary.

A pictorial history of the year's major developments, this collection of more than 360 editorial cartoons focuses the spotlight on those stories that claimed banner treatment in newspapers around the world.

Included are such intriguing issues as the travails of the Carter Administration, the Bert Lance affair, the cash-and-carry Korean scandal, the antics of Brother Billy Carter, a balky U.S. Congress, and the free-wheeling diplomacy of United Nations ambassador Andrew Young. Without a doubt, the year seemed tailor-made for editorial cartoonists everywhere.

The cartoonist's pen also gives special attention to the continuing struggle for peace in the Middle East, the Panama Canal debate, the political tinderbox in Africa, and President Carter's advocacy of human rights throughout the world.

Twenty-six of the year's major issues and events are explored in depth by these talented artists, among whom are numbered dozens of award winners, including Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonists.

This volume also pays special tribute to the dean of the editorial profession, Cy Hungerford of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The venerable Hungerford delighted readers with his cartoons for seventy-four years before retiring in 1977 at the age of eighty-nine.
