Jytte Klausen

is professor of comparative politics at Brandeis University and author of The Cartoons That Shook the World, Yale 2009.


Jytte Klausen’s book “The Cartoons That Shook the World” (published by Yale University Press) is the first scholarly examination of the notorious controversy that erupted in 2006. Three years ago, she set out to unravel the genesis of the debacle and to analyse the cartoons and their impact. Last summer, several months before publication, Yale University Press unexpectedly took the decision not to publish the cartoons in her book.
