Synopsis

Since 2010, Martin Rowson has been documenting the highs and lows - mainly the lows - of the Tory-Lib Dem coalition week after week in The Guardian, as well as in The Morning Star, Tribune and many other publications. This book collects Rowson's best, most brutally funny, cartoons from a period that began with a "big, open, comprehensive offer" to Nick Clegg, continued on through riots, phone-hacking, double-dip recession, and endless debates on Europe, and will end (perhaps) with the general election in 2015. Accompanied by witty explanatory text, The Coalition Book takes a biting satirical look at Cameron and Clegg's first - and perhaps last - five years in charge. The book contains a foreword by Will Self.

Customer Reviews

Does a better account on the last years of government exist? Personally, I doubt it. All the cartoons are rare gems.
