The Offensive Art

The Offensive Art
The Offensive Art: Political Satire & Its Censorship Around The World From Beerbohm To Borat, by Leonard Freedman, is a survey of satirical comedy in America, Britain, India, and the Middle East. Its focus is on the subversive media representations of National Socialist and Communist dictators, and the criticisms of American presidents protected by the first amendment. Freedman selects from a variety of media, including feature films (Dr Strangelove) and editorial cartoons (including Kurt Westergaard's Mohammed caricature, which is reproduced).
