Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking the seemingly gentle innocence of a "beloved" national icon, as well as forms of entertainment - theme parks, cartoons, and television - the essays examine the broader issues raised by analysis: the global impact of American popular culture, the politics of Disney, and the complexity and problems of meaning for Walt Disney and the Disney Company as we have received them. Contributors: Julianne Burton, Lisa Cartwright, Brian Goldfarb, Richard DeCordova, Douglas Gomery, David Kunzle, Jon Lewis, Moya Luckett, Richard Neupert, Susan Ohmer, Jose Piedra, Mitsuhiro Yoshimoto, Alexander Wilson.

Synopsis:

This book examines the pervasive cultural influence of Walt Disney and his imaginary empire. Drawing both on the humanities and social sciences, the contributors read through Disney's domestic cultural production - 'innocent' national icons, as well as theme parks, cartoons and television - to analyze the global impact of American popular culture, the politics of Disney, and the complex reception of Disney productions around the world.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 237-255) and index.
