Animation: The Global World History

Maureen Furniss (Author)

The cultural, political and economic context and evolution of this dynamic industry

The book emphasizes both artistic and technical achievements from around the world – from Hollywood to Tokyo, from Moscow to Sydney.

Featuring a timeline for each of its six parts, Animation: The Global History provides readers with a clear and accessible chronology of events.

A ‘Global Storyline’, highlighting the major themes of the era, opens each chapter, and an end-of-book glossary defines key terms used throughout the book.
