Description

A rip-roaring collection of Britain's finest political satire, from Hogarth and Gillray to Martin Rowson, Steve Bell, Peter Brookes and Nicola Jennings. Between Waterloo and Brexit, cartoons have been Britain's most famous antidote to the chaos of public politics. Skewering the issues and characters that have dominated the news over three centuries, these cartoons have united those who love, and those who hate their politicians. A wild journey through the scandals that made a nation, this is the ultimate book of sketches which have stood the test of time.
