How To Read Donald Duck: Imperialist Ideology in the Disney Comic

£34.99

Product description

Is Walt Disney that innocent? Why are there no parents in his comic books? How come the natives and savages always give up their riches to the duck invaders? Why does Donald love statues and photo albums? What are Huey, Dewey, and Louie doing in Vietnam?
The Chilean people began to ask these and other questions in revolutionary Chile in 1970. How to read Donald Duck was first published as Para Leer al Pato Donald in Chile in 1971, and during the fascist period it was banned and burned there with other literature. A product of the political struggle, the book is a profound and imaginative critique of the sacred cow of children's culture: the Disney Myth.
With a new preface by the authors, an updated introduction by David Kunzle, an annotated bibliography of left writings on cultural imperialism and the comics, and an appendix by John Shelton Lawrence on the U.S. government's censorship and the legal-political right to criticise Disney.
