Behind the Lines: The Year's Best Cartoons brings together the best cartoons and illustrations collected by the National Museum of Australia in 2006. Cartoons from major city newspapers are represented along with examples from regional publications. As you look through these images, the major events of the year unfold, including the ongoing war on terror, the 'cash for crops' controversy, and the debate over the nation's industrial relations laws.

Amusing and at times thought-provoking, the cartoons presented in Behind the Lines provide a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the past 12 months of Australian politics.
