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.
