How to Read Donald Duck Imperialist Ideology in the Disney Comic

How to Read Donald Duck Imperialist Ideology in the Disney Comic

Author: Ariel Dorfman, Armand Mattelart Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/03/2019

First published in 1971, How to Read Donald Duck shocked readers by revealing how capitalist ideology operates in our most beloved cartoons. Having survived bonfires, impounding and being dumped into the ocean by the Chilean army, this controversial book is once again back on our shelves. Written and published during the blossoming of Salvador Allende's revolutionary socialism, the book examines how Disney comics not only reflect capitalist ideology, but are active agents working in this ideology's favour. Focusing on the hapless mice and ducks of Disney, curiously parentless, marginalised and always short of cash, Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart expose how these characters established hegemonic ideas about capital, race, gender and the relationship between developed countries and the Third World. A devastating indictment of a media giant, a document of twentieth-century political upheaval, and a reminder of the dark undercurrent of pop culture, How to Read Donald Duck is once again available, together with a new introduction by Ariel Dorfman.

Text in Arabic. Tense and tightly woven, Thiqah is a dramatic novel set in Paris during World War II about a woman whose lover is accused of working for the Resistance. The novel follows nine hours of phone conversations between a woman and a mysterious stranger who seems to know everything about her and the reasons she fled her homeland. As the dialogue progresses, the man tells her many disturbing things about her and her lover (who may be in great danger), the political situations in which they are enmeshed, and his fantasies about her. Powerful and menacing, Thiqah draws the reader into a post-modern mystery where nothing -- including the text itself -- is what it seems.

Cuando este libro se publico en Chile en 1972, fue recibido como una afrenta a la moralidad, un intento de socavar el mundo inocente y puro de la ninez. Atacar a Disney, desnudar al idolo denunciando las falacias contenidas en sus creaciones, significaba quebrar la armonia familiar y, con ello, desarmar la metafora del pensamiento burgues que Donald encarnaba. Disney se haba convertido, para Dorfman y Mattelart, en "e;una reserva incuestionable del acervo cultural del hombre contemporneo"e;, de su representacin cotidiana. Y su criatura era el portavoz no slo del american way of life, sino tambin de los sueos, las aspiraciones y las pautas de comportamiento que los Estados Unidos exigan a los pases dependientes para su propia salvacin. El cmic se revelaba como un manual de instrucciones para los pueblos subdesarrollados sobre cmo habran de ser sus relaciones con los centros del capitalismo internacional. Para leer al Pato Donald es un Iibro clave de la literatura poltica de los aos setenta, pero la vigencia de los temas que aborda -las relaciones familiares, el imaginario Infantil, la comunicacin, la vida urbana, el trabajo, el ocio, el dinero, el consumo- hace tambin de l una obra Indispensable de la literatura poltica actual.
