"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
"The book offers an extensive as well as absorbing survey of Disney's efforts to exploit and keep up with the American tendency to forget the past." - The Medieval Review
"The volume is grounded in theory and the scholarship is of a high standard while also being accessible, and individual chapters may be useful at undergraduate level. It will be of interest not only to scholars of medievalism, but to those working in gender studies and popular culture studies more broadly as well." - Parergon
