    Philippine Cartoons: Political Caricature of the American Era, 1900-1941

    Alfred McCoy, Alfredo Roces
    Winner, National Book Award, History, 1985
    Philippine political cartoons gained full expression during the American era. Filipino artists recorded national attitudes toward the coming of the Americans as well as the changing mores and times. While the 377 cartoons compiled in this book speak for themselves, historian Alfred McCoy’s extensive research in Philippine and American archives provides a comprehensive background not only to the cartoons but to the turbulent period as well. Artist-writer Alfredo Roces, who designed the book, contributes an essay on Philippine graphic satire of the period.
