Dr. Seuss Goes to War: The World War II Editorial Cartoons of Theodor Seuss Geisel by Richard H. Minear with an introduction by Art Spiegelman
For decades, readers throughout the world have enjoyed the marvelous stories and illustrations of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. But few know Geisel's work as a political cartoonist during World War II. In these marvelously trenchant cartoons drawn for the New York daily newspaper PM, Geisel captured the zeitgeist of the New York left with a wonderful Seussian flair that People magazine calls "instantly recognizable." Dr. Seuss Goes to War features handsome, large-format reproductions of more than 200 of Geisel's cartoons, alongside "insightful" (Booklist) commentary by the historian Richard H. Minear that places them in the context of the national climate they reflect.
