240 pp., including index. Near fine/Near fine. Dust jacket not price-clipped. Please be aware that the image shown is not of our actual copy.

Weight 1800g. Size 30x26x3cm.

From the revolutionary Sixties to the present day, this book explores the many ways graphic art and design have addressed social and political issues. The book covers a broad range of subject areas including war, peace, national politics, ecology, health, civil rights and sexual politics.

Images of anger and emotion, humour and satire appear throughout, as symbols of power, peace and persuasion. In addition to their striking visual impact, this collection of images and memorabilia presents a powerful reflection of the social concerns and political struggles of our age.
