This expanded and revised edition of Henry Giroux's highly acclaimed book explores and updates the cultural politics of the Walt Disney Company and how its ever-expanding list of products, services, and media function as teaching machines that shape children's culture into a largely commercial endeavor. In addition to updates throughout the book, this edition includes a new discussion of Disney's shift in marketing strategies targeting teens and tweens, a new chapter about globalization and Disney's empire, and a new chapter on Disney and national security after 9/11.
