This chapter examines the postwar cartooning career of Bill Mauldin. Mauldin emerged from World War II as one of America's foremost liberal cartoonists, but his hopes of using his pen to speak out against the nation's postwar ills were severely chastened by the politics of anticommunism.

Keywords:   post-war period, Bill Mauldin, liberal cartoonists, anticommunism, World War II, American satire
