In this provocative new book, Perjovschi presents a sceptical commentary on contemporary global conflicts and dilemmas, military and economic imperialism, and the complexities and contradictions of social and political life in a post-cold war world. Drawing on popular forms of newspaper cartoons and comics for his often unpalatable truths, his drawings are disorderly and disrespectful, puncturing the world of the mass media and their trivial, bizarre products. Perjovschi is a master of the punch line, his command of language unique, infused with puns and multiple meanings. The result is brilliant, genuinely revolutionary - and frequently very funny.
