From Mouse to Mermaid : The Politics of Film, Gender, and Culture
by Elizabeth Bell ( Editor ), Lynda Haas ( Editor ), Laura Sells ( Editor )
In this collection of essays, the editors have managed to compile a broad range of
materials that critique Disney in the spirit of critique, meaning a thoughtful and serious investigation. As the title suggests, much of the work here is interested in
gender, but questions of race and ethnicity are also asked, as well as issues of power and identity. Although these are fairly heady topics, many of the essays
are lively and engaging. For those just beginning to study Disney seriously, the works of Jack Zipes and Henry Girous are recommended. For work on the animated films, the contributions of the editors
(Bell, Haas, and Sells) are thought-provoking as well. All the essays, in fact, offer food for thought, whether one is in agreement with the authors or not.
