Stabbed in the Front: Post-war General Elections Through Political Cartoons Paperback – April 11, 2001
by Alan Mumford (Author)

As this book makes clear, impartiality has no place here. Political cartoons can be funny, scabrous, rude, vulgar, outrageous, acute, wrong-headed, right-thinking or extremely partisan, but if they are impartial, then that’s the kiss of death. As this book makes clear, impartiality has no place here. Political cartoons can be funny, scabrous, rude, vulgar, outrageous, acute, wrong-headed, right-thinking or extremely partisan, but if they are impartial, then that’s the kiss of death. The book itself charts every general election since 1945, with Low, Vicky, Illingworth and Trog making a particularly strong showing. The structure is simple: an introductory essay followed by a chapter devoted to each election. Obscure references and characters are explained. It doesn’t pretend to be a comprehensive catalogue, but the story it tells is a fascinating one.
