Publisher Comments:

Today, cultural practices and institutions shape nearly every aspect of our lives. Giroux takes up this issue by looking at the world's most influential corporation. He explores the diverse ways in which the Disney Corporation has become a political force in shaping images of public memory, producing children as consuming subjects, and legitimating ideological positions that constitute a deeply conservative and disturbing view of the roles imparted to children and adults alike. Giroux shows how Disney attempts to hide behind a cloak of innocence and entertainment, while simultaneously exercising its influence as a major force on both global economics and cultural learning. Disney is among several corporations that not only preside over international media, but also outstrip the traditional practices of schooling in shaping the desires, needs, and futures of today's children. Written by one of the nation's leading cultural critics, this book is important reading for anyone interested in education, society, and political culture.

Book News Annotation:

Widely read cultural critic Giroux (education, Pennsylvania State U.) looks at the world's most influential corporation. He argues that the Disney Corporation has become a political force in shaping images of public memory, producing children as consuming subjects, and legitimating a deeply conservative and disturbing view of the roles imparted to children and adults alike. Hiding behind a cloak of innocence and entertainment, he says, it has usurped the school, the family, and the church in shaping the desires, needs, and futures of today's children.
