Britain's Best Political Cartoons 2016 is a compelling, razor-sharp and frequently hilarious collection of almost 200 of the year's most acerbic and insightful political cartoons. All the highs and lows of the past year are covered: from major international events (the migrant crisis, the US presidential election, and the Olympic Games in Rio), to more local issues (the EU referendum, struggles over the Labour leadership, and the NHS crisis) - not to mention the offbeat and bizarre (Donald Trump's tiny hands and Jeremy Corbyn's cat). With contributions from Britain's finest cartoonists, including Steve Bell, Peter Brookes, Dave Brown, Chris Riddell and Martin Rowson, it's the perfect bedside book - and a browser's delight.

'Magnificent . . . Goldblatt is the doyen of sports historians and brings to this account his forensic and telling eye for detail' - Mail on Sunday A Sunday Times Best Sports Book of the Year The epic exploration of society, politics, and economics in the twenty-first century through the prism of football, by the critically acclaimed author of The Ball is Round. In the twenty-first century football is first. First among sports themselves, but it now commands the allegiance, interest and engagement of more people in more places than any other phenomenon. In the three most populous nations on the earth – China, India and the United States where just twenty years ago football existed on the periphery of society – it has now arrived for good. Nations, peoples and neighbourhoods across the globe imagine and invent themselves through playing and following the game. In The Age of Football, David Goldblatt charts football’s global cultural ascent, its economic transformation and deep politicization, taking in prison football in Uganda and amputee football in Angola, the role of football fans in the Arab Spring, the footballing presidencies of Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Turkey’s Recep Erdogan, China’s declared intention to both host and win the World Cup by 2050, and the FIFA corruption scandal. Following the intersection of the game with money, power and identity, like no previous sports historian, Goldblatt’s sweeping story is remarkable in its scope, breathtaking in its depth of knowledge, and is a brilliantly original perspective of the twenty-first century. It is the account of how football has come to define every facet of our social, economic and cultural lives and at what cost, shaping who we think we are and who we want to be. 'David Goldblatt is not merely the best football historian writing today, he is possibly the best there has ever been.' – Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

Punch Cartoons of the Great War Illustrated

The Great War was dominated by two satirical papers; Punch and the journal best known by it's original name, The Wipers Times. Punch magazine was a well-established journal comparable in style and content to today's Private Eye. It had a wide circle of distribution and was recognised by the British Nation as a middle-class and supposedly unbiased account of current affairs. The two papers had many similarities, the greatest being that they shared the same ethos. Both believed that comedy should be employed in a cathartic role against the tension, fear and grief caused by the fighting. However, both dramatically diverge in outlook, contents, the ideas they pursued and the ways in which these ideas were expressed and laid out within each paper. Punch, or The London Charivari, officially started production in 1842, although several magazines with almost identical titles had been in circulation for some time. The concept for all of these magazines was however the same - they were anti-establishment, politically motivated satires, although the humour they contained was of a fairly lowbrow level. The body of each magazine was based around three main types: short articles, poems and black-cut illustrations - small prints which accompanied puns either in the text or which ran underneath. These prints became Punch's most distinctive trademark, and the magazine helped initiate the techniques of using captioned pen and ink drawings to depict political comedy which are still used to great extent in newspapers today. In "A History of Punch" (Collins, 1957), R.G.G. Price describes the ways in which Punch used these new techniques to instigate its own brand of humour: "The mock systemisation (of the articles and illustrations) and the pin-pointing of the targets - two different types of joke - created a tension between them. This kind of tension is one of the great Punch qualities. The standard of writing and pithiness varied very much from item to item. The political material was, on the whole, keener than the social. Though Punch attacked separate abuses, it had no programme and no philosophy"
