Summary
A hard-hitting examination of the diverse ways that Disney--arguably the world's most influential corporation--implements its goals of shaping a world culture of consumerism while hiding behind a cloak of innocence and entertainment. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: How are children--and their parents--affected by the world's most influential corporation? Henry A. Giroux explores the surprisingly diverse ways in which Disney, while hiding behind a cloak of innocence and entertainment, strives to dominate global media and shape the desires, needs, and futures of today's children. Giroux takes the reader inside the company's vision of the full range of its media--its films, television, famous characters, and spin-off products, as well as its special school, Celebration. He reveals how Disney idealizes and implements its goal of building a world culture--based on innocence and morals, but insidious in its consumerist exploits.
