Books Description:

Disney World is often referred to as the “happiest place on earth” and the character Mickey Mouse is long ingrained in our collective memory. The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest and most valuable companies in the world. But behind all of that was one ambitious small-town farm boy who failed as often as he succeeded, and finally found worldwide fame – thanks to a cartoon mouse.

Throughout the rise of Walt Disney, LIFE magazine was there, covering everything from the first Mickey merchandising to the launch of Walt Disney World in 1971, and now in this all-new special edition, LIFE revisits both the man and the magic in LIFE Walt Disney: From Mickey to the Magic Kingdom. Very few people know that as a young entrepreneur, he struggled with bankruptcy, borrowing money until he had a hit with the Mickey Mouse cartoons in the late 1920s. Beloved movies of today – Pinocchio, Fantasia, and Bambi – bombed when first released, and it wasn't until the astronomical success of Disneyland in 1951 that finally put his company into the black.

From early days to troubled times, and successes and failures too numerous to count that bring us all to the World of Disney that we all know and love today, LIFE Walt Disney is a fitting tribute to a creative force that has and will continue to influence countless generations for years to come.

Books Description:

Long before David Letterman made it a nightly ritual, groupings of ten seemed to be the most common form of list making (commandments, amendments, FBI most wanted, etc.) Top 10 lists abound for everything today, from movies and music to sports and politics. There is so much Disney history to cover, however, that it can’t be contained in one simple list, thus “The Top 100 Top Ten of Disney.” There is not a person on Earth who hasn’t come into contact with Disney in some way. Whether seeing a Disney film, hearing a Disney song, recognizing a Disney character or visiting a Disney park, the company’s reach is global. The Top 100 Top Ten of Disney will collect the best of the best of Disney in a book of lists. From Walt himself and the beginning of his company, to his successors who have broadened the reach of the Disney brand well beyond where even Walt could have imagined it, this book will cover every aspect of the 93 years of history that Disney has to offer. In it you will find information on everything from Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Queen Elsa, to the billion dollar acquisitions of Marvel and Lucasfilm. Written for casual and die-hard fans alike, The Top 100 Top Ten of Disney will revisit some familiar characters, films, songs, rides, and personalities associated with Disney but will also uncover some forgotten, obscure and overlooked parts of the company as well, such as the unlikely Disney films Victory Through Air Power (1943) and The Story of Menstruation (1946). The book will be laid out in easy to read “bite size” pieces. It will be one of those books that the whole family can enjoy and can be picked up and referred to again and again. Author Bio: Christopher Lucas is a lifelong fan of all things Disney. His admiration for Walt, and the company he built, led Chris to create a one person show called “Of Mouse and Man” which has been performed in several colleges, theaters and civic centers. He is also the co‐author of Seeing Home: The Ed Lucas Story, the critically acclaimed book released by Simon & Schuster and Derek Jeter Publishing in April 2015. Christopher lives in suburban New Jersey with his two young sons. His goal someday is to take a vacation somewhere that doesn’t involve a visit to a Disney theme park.

Books Description:

A revolutionary reimagining of the cities we live in, the air above us, and what goes on in the earth beneath our feet Today we live in a world that can no longer be read as a two-dimensional map, but must now be understood as a series of vertical strata that reach from the satellites that encircle our planet to the tunnels deep within the ground. In Vertical, Stephen Graham rewrites the city at every level: how the geography of inequality, politics, and identity is determined in terms of above and below. Starting at the edge of earth’s atmosphere and, in a series of riveting studies, descending through each layer, Graham explores the world of drones, the city from the viewpoint of an aerial bomber, the design of sidewalks and the hidden depths of underground bunkers. He asks: why was Dubai built to be seen from Google Earth? How do the super-rich in São Paulo live in their penthouses far above the street? Why do London billionaires build vast subterranean basements? And how do the technology of elevators and subversive urban explorers shape life on the surface and subsurface of the earth? Vertical will make you look at the world around you anew: this is a revolution in understanding your place in the world.

Books Description:

This book addresses Disney parks using performance theory. Few to no scholars have done this to date—an enormous oversight given the Disney parks’ similarities to immersive theatre, interpolation of guests, and dramaturgical construction of attractions. Most scholars and critics deny agency to the tourist in their engagement with the Disney theme park experience. The vast body of research and journalism on the Disney “Imagineers”—the designers and storytellers who construct the park experience—leads to the misconception that these exceptional artists puppeteer every aspect of the guest’s experience. Contrary to this assumption, Disney park guests find a range of possible reading strategies when they enter the space. Certainly Disney presents a primary reading, but generations of critical theory have established the variety of reading strategies that interpreters can employ to read against the text. This volume of twelve essays re-centers the park experience around its protagonist: the tourist.

Books Description:

In recent years, computer games have moved from the margins of popular culture to its center. Reviews of new games and profiles of game designers now regularly appear in the New York Times and the New Yorker, and sales figures for games are reported alongside those of books, music, and movies. They are increasingly used for purposes other than entertainment, yet debates about videogames still fork along one of two paths: accusations of debasement through violence and isolation or defensive paeans to their potential as serious cultural works. In How to Do Things with Videogames, Ian Bogost contends that such generalizations obscure the limitless possibilities offered by the medium’s ability to create complex simulated realities. Bogost, a leading scholar of videogames and an award-winning game designer, explores the many ways computer games are used today: documenting important historical and cultural events; educating both children and adults; promoting commercial products; and serving as platforms for art, pornography, exercise, relaxation, pranks, and politics. Examining these applications in a series of short, inviting, and provocative essays, he argues that together they make the medium broader, richer, and more relevant to a wider audience. Bogost concludes that as videogames become ever more enmeshed with contemporary life, the idea of gamers as social identities will become obsolete, giving rise to gaming by the masses. But until games are understood to have valid applications across the cultural spectrum, their true potential will remain unrealized. How to Do Things with Videogames offers a fresh starting point to more fully consider games’ progress today and promise for the future.
