OVER THE COURSE of this research, people with whom I have discussed this project have sent me links and news of cartoons, comics, graphic novels, children books and even animated movies. This flood of support made me realize how difficult it can be to distinguish political cartoons from caricatures, paintings or doodles. Caricature is a quintessential feature of the editorial

A QUINTESSENTIAL FEATURE of political cartoons is their ability to reduce a complex situation into a binary clash of interests. Politics become a battle of opposites, where good fights evil, outsiders threaten insiders and victims resist oppressors. The most articulate and detailed newspaper report cannot match the clarity of political cartoons, simply because real life is

POLITICAL CARTOONS are cultural products inseparable from their production environment. Few dispute that the political, economic and organizational structures imprint themselves on their content and style. As Darby (1983: 114) explains: ‘The context in which [a cartoonist] operates, whether defined as his nation or the newspaper for which he works, provides him with both themes and

THIS BOOK began as an attempt to understand the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It quickly evolved into a research project on political cartoons. Its journey from an international relations study of the Middle East conflict to a cartoon analysis of public opinion forced me across disciplinary divides that locate this work at the intersection of international relations, media

In this chapter, I seek to answer crucial questions: when and how do leaders matter in shaping a state’s foreign policy? Which dimensions of leadership are important? I then offer a portrait of Bush and Rumsfeld as leaders, utilizing multiple sources of evidence to understand their worldviews and management styles. Readers less concerned with matters of political science

background, the EU is often turned into a benevolent actor. Such was the message by European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and EU President Herman van Rompuy in response to the awarding of the Nobel peace prize to the EU in October 2012: ‘this Prize is the strongest possible recognition of the deep political motives behind our Union: the unique effort by ever more European states to overcome war

‘Victim’ nations and the brotherhood of humanity

. It is with the elaboration of impending crisis in the Balkans – and the politics of humanity and relief in Britain – that this chapter is concerned. In 1876–78 the fate of communities affected by separatist violence in the Ottoman Empire would see sympathy and material support for ‘oppressed’ Christians become, for some, a moral imperative. Others felt the need to stabilise and

Serbia-Montenegro confronted a formidable series of political level security sector reform challenges in October 2000. The Army, 1 police and intelligence agencies of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRJ) had been deeply politicised under the old regime, while many of their most senior personnel were implicated in war crimes, corruption or organised

Croatia faced a number of difficult political level security sector reform challenges in early 2000. The death of Franjo Tuđman and the electoral defeat of his HDZ party changed the domestic political landscape entirely. However, the military, police and intelligence agencies were all still deeply partisan actors, institutionally sympathetic towards

In a volume intended to have a contemporary bearing, it may seem idiosyncratic to devote an entire chapter to the Cold War. There are, after all, other more recent episodes which could be said to have shaped international politics and to which connections can be drawn with the book’s central concerns of inclusion/exclusion and security. Yet security relations in Europe
