"The dean of America's political cartoonists."--"GQ" "The most quintessentially American of cartoonists: cranky when he wants to be, fiercely independent, relentlessly individualistic."--"New York Times Magazine" "There is too much creeping Mother Theresa-ism in this world," proclaimed Pat Oliphant in a "New York Times" interview. "We need conflict." Indeed, the conflicts and crises of American politics have provided Oliphant with plenty of targets for his powerful pen. In "Fashions for the New World Order," Oliphant uses his legendary artistry and unrelenting wit to pierce the heart of such issues as the Marion Berry scandal, the crisis in education, the savings and loan fiasco, and the Gulf War. Oliphant has become an American institution to rival the politicians he satirizes. A true egalitarian, Oliphant attacks both conservatives and liberals. He also allows his opinions of political figures to evolve with their careers. "Fashions for the New World Order" chronicles the chickens (and turkeys) of the Reagan era as they come home to roost. One panel at a time, Oliphant throws his own unique light on foreign policy, Congressional squabbles, and domestic issues--and the picture that emerges provides one of the most accurate, insightful portraits of American politics available.
