Baker has collected hundreds of caricature pieces from 1763-1783. Almost all are satirical, the origins of what has today become the editorial cartoon. Prior to the advent of broadcasting these were the principal vehicle of both lampoon and propaganda. They are printed here in high-quality full color, accompanied by detailed explanatory captions, and a witty and mature prose description of events - many of which have fallen to obscurity over the years since. Baker has succeeded in bringing the era to life for the reader, and has produced what may be one the finest histories of the American Revolution ever written.
