Comic Commentators: Contemporary Political Cartooning in Australia

Published by Network Books
Anyone who reads a newspaper reads the political cartoons. Each is an island of condensed visual humour in a sea of print. For more than a century, Australia has had a particularly potent and much-loved cartooning tradition, but we have only a limited understanding of how cartoons work and what they really do.

As the response to the Danish Mohammed cartoons and the debate over the 2006 Sedition laws suggest, there is a growing sensitivity to cartoons’ potential impact in public debate, and so it is a good time to ask what the role of cartoons is in Australian politics, policy and media. This collection brings together cartoonists, media professionals and researchers all, in their different ways, fascinated by the contribution cartoons make to our public life.
