A latecomer within the prestigious award system, the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning only started in 1922. That was five years after the establishment of the other Pulitzer Prizes. The volume at hand analyzes and documents the fascinating history of the cartoon awards until 2012. The annual juror selection processes are explained on the basis of the jury reports. Each award winner is portrayed in a biographical sketch together with a reprint of one of his cartoons.
