Editorial Reviews


"This collection of fourteen essays provides a balanced and often quite witty assessment of Disney's films, TV shows, marketing strategies, theme parks, personal philosophies, pedagogy, social and political practices of Walt Disney and his Corporate Legacy . . . The collection speaks well to a scholarly audience, while, at the same time, addressing intelligently a broader audience that includes virtually anyone who has ever seen a Disney movie or TV program or been to a theme park - that is, about everyone who has grown up in America or elsewhere. The bibliography is excellent." - Medievally Speaking

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a bona fide Disney addict. But I have read many books on the not so magical side of Disney. This one is particularly uncomfortable but not in a terrible way. It's a little hard reading at times. I like content where I have to research word meanings, but this one will get you ready for a crossword puzzle challenge. Anyway, a really good book.
