For centuries, cartoonists have used their pens to fight a war against war,translating images of violent conflict into symbols of protest. Noted comicshistorian Craig Yoe brings the greatest of these artists together in one place,presenting the ultimate collection of anti-war cartoons ever assembled.Together, these cartoons provide a powerful testament to the old adage, "The penis mightier than the sword," and remind us that so often in the 20thcentury, it was the editorial cartoonist who could say the things his fellownewspapermen and women only dreamed of, enlightening and rallying a nationagainst unjust aggression. Readers of The Great Anti-War Cartoons willfind stunning artwork from the pens of Francisco Goya to Art Young, from RobertMinor to Ron Cobb, and from Honoré Daumier to Robert Crumb.
