Power and Paradise in Walt Disney’s World

by Cher Krause Knight

A roller coaster of a book that will leave you marveling.”—Harriet F. Senie, author of The “Tilted Arc” Controversy

Why is Disney World such a huge sociocultural force? Find out in this lively book. Cher Krause Knight explores every detail of Walt Disney’s inspiration and vision for Disney World, from the scale and design of the buildings to the sidewalk infrastructure to which items could and could not be sold in the shops, discussing how each was carefully arranged to shape the experience of every visitor. Knight expertly delves into the unexpected nuances and contradictions of this elaborate playland of the imagination.
