Pressestimmen""Perceptive and elegant.""-- Times literary Supplement "in this incisive and profound study, you find such classic subjects as Adolph Hitler, Charlie Chaplin, Leon Trotsky, Mickey Mouse, Nazism, Leni Riefenstahl, Theodor W. Adorna, Sergei M. Eisenstein, Dumbo, Betty Boop, the class Struggle, Piet Mondrian, Walter Benjamin and Walt Disney (along with much, much more)." -- Giannalberto Bendazzi, Animation World Net "Once in a long while, a book appears that meets all the high standards of scholarship.
