Written by James Goodman

Here's the information on ordering the book:

The Quest for Health Reform: A Satirical History brings together two American political traditions - editorial cartooning as a medium for trenchant contemporary commentary and the long-standing effort to achieve universal national health reform. As early as the nineteenth century, caricatures and cartoons parodied the leading personalities and institutions in American politics. This book focuses on national health reform as told through the vision of popular editorial cartoonists.

ISBN: 978-0-87553-020-8
Author: Georges C. Benjamin, MD; Theodore M. Brown, PhD; Susan Ladwig, MPH; and Elyse Berkman
Publisher: APHA Press

I'll be picking up a copy of this as I build my collection of comics and cartoon books from Washington.
