Satire and Politics
Dir gefällt dieses Produkt? Sag's weiter!
This book examines the multi-media explosion of contemporary political satire. Rooted in 18th century Augustan practice, satire's indelible link with politics underlies today's universal disgust with the ways of elected politicians. This study interrogates the impact of British and American satirical media on political life, with a special focus on political cartoons and the levelling humour of Australasian satirists.
"This cross-disciplinary book is fascinating not only because it is not infested with theory but also because alongside literature, it sweeps over traditional and modern media as well as motion pictures while paying particular attention to cartoons. Excellent artwork and high production quality make the book even more alluring. ... The diversity of contributors, ranging from academic scholars to professional comedians, adds to the entertaining quality of this book." (Massih Zekavat, Humor, Vol. 32 (3), 2019)
"Satire and Politics takes up the challenge of making us appreciate the play space provided by satire, and of taking its impact seriously. Its combination of subjects and approaches makes it a well-rounded collection that I strongly recommend." (Jeanne Mathieu-Lessard, European Journal of Humour Research, Vol. 7 (2), 2019)
