In seeing the work of America's political cartoonists en masse, it is easy to appreciate how often they come up with the precise bit of wit that sums up a complex political argument. Though Brooks, cartoonist for the Birmingham (Ala.) News, is a little heavy-handed with his superserious subject groupings like "The Economy," "Crime," "Poland" and "Social Security," he has included a broad spectrum of viewpoints. This collection draws from the work of such inveterate liberals as Paul Conrad of the Los Angeles Times and Corky Trinidad of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and from such crusty conservatives as Dick Locher of the Chicago Tribune and Ed Gamble of the Florida Times-Union. Also represented are talented political middle-of-the-roaders like Jim Berry of NEA and Tom Engelhardt of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. (Pelican Publishing, paper, $9.95)
