The guide consists of comments on over 120 representative foreign cartoons featuring Obama, created in at least 40 different countries. Many of such cartoons have never been seen in America and are considered politically incorrect for publication due to American media temerity, discrimination and outright censorship. Nevertheless there are many international cartoon syndicates and distribution services that can be used to locate, inspect and obtain copies of such cartoons through the Internet
The countries covered in this edition include Afghanistan, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Mexico, North Korea, Norway, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, United Kingdom, Venezuela, and Yemen.
Due to copyright and ownership issues the guide does not display actual cartoon images but includes instructions how to locate them at specific web sites throughout the world, and provides the links to all the sources used in their selection and analysis.
Readers can pick a country or specific tags and locate corresponding cartoons using the links provided in each country listing. They will also enjoy many more cartoons in most cases although not all pertain to Obama and his foreign policy activities. Many foreign cartoons have also tags in English because local politicians and statesmen as well as publishers hope these will be picked up by publications in the English-speaking world.
The First Edition of the guide contains comments and links to one or more foreign Obama cartoon in each of 41 countries. These are listed alphabetically with cartoon tag lines for each country identified in the table of contents. As political events develop around the world new cartoons are created in those and other countries which are monitored by 21st Century Research and prepared for comments and publication in subsequent editions of the guide.
This project is designed by 21st Century Research to focus on specific cartoons that illustrate reactions by foreign governments to various Obama foreign policy moves and initiatives. Special attention will be given to any cartoons dealing with nuclear weapons.
21st Century Research evaluates foreign sources including newspapers, magazines as well as radio and TV commentaries that accumulated political cartoons since 2008 when Obama was elected President of the United States.
Depending on the progress with location and acquisition of Obama cartoons the guide may be published in several editions. It is expected that the number of cartoons may increase rapidly as the November elections in USA approach. Our plans are to reissue this guide when we accumulate an additional 100 more recent cartoons from abroad.
Journalists and those who are interested will be notified by E-mail as soon as the Guides are being published if they provide their E-mail addresses to 21st Century Research requesting early notification. These requests should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
