There was no one like him. Throughout a career spanning seventy-two years and thirteen American presidents, Herblock’s spare, folksy cartoons made complex issues seem simple and moral choices clear. Syndicated throughout the country, his cartoons focused on important issues of the time, making Americans take note of the human folly that is politics. Published in conjunction with a Library of Congress exhibition chronicling his life and times, Herblock will warm the hearts of all who have followed his work in the past and serve as an introduction of his work to a new generation. It is a celebration of his life that reinforces the importance of editorial cartoons as a vital means for expressing political opinion in America. Haynes Johnson provides a reverent and insightful biography, while Harry Katz places Herblock and his work in context. In addition to more than two hundred fifty cartoons in the text, a DVD containing more than 18,000 cartoons completes the collection.

Hanyes Bonner Johnson was born in 1931 in New York City. He earned his bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri and his Master's in American History from the University of Wisconsin. Johnson served as a 1st Lieutenant in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. Johnson won a Pulitzer Prize for distinguished national reporting in 1966 for his coverage of the civil rights crisis in Selma, Alabama and he is widely regarded as one of the nation's top political commentators. Haynes Johnson is the author or editor of a number of books including bestsellers "Sleepwalking Through History", "The Bay of Pigs", "The Landing", and "The Battle for America 2008: The Story of an Extraordinary Election".
