Comments Para leer al pato Donald: comunicación de masas y colonialismo

  • Trevor

    This is utterly remarkable. A Marxist critique of Donald Duck from Chilean academics published prior to the US inspired (and paid for) coup and burnt in the streets afterwards. But this analysis is much more interesting than just some historical curiosity. That Marxist Chileans didn’t much like Walt Disney is hardly surprising. What is interesting is that in providing this cultural analysis they are not merely saying that Disney was a representative of the capitalist class and therefore only i [...]

    Donald Duck as the agent of American imperialism? Surely it’s a joke, right?Not according to Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart, exiles from the Chilean dictatorship. They are in dead earnest – and they do a good job of convincing the reader, in this slim volume of less than a hundred pages.Donald Duck (and later on, Uncle Scrooge) was my personal favourite among the Disney characters. In an age bereft of TV and computers, comic books were very popular among the bookish kids – and Walt Dis [...]

    A marxist take on cultural imperialism in Latin America. This was a useful text for my MA thesis in discussing the effect that globalism had on comic strips in Latin America. Though it has been a while since I have read it, Reviewing it brought me back to my time in graduate school


  • 'Izzat Radzi

    This book was originally written in Chile, in the early 70's, in favour of the Chilean revolution. It's as the author notes, the message behind the culture promoted by the Disney comic's Donald Duck in the country, is worrisome (that is, for culture watchers). Aspects like the consumerism belt, repression of class struggle, women existence only as adulation and pageantry, the formation of images of third world countries (not only Chile's, but Vietnam as well amongst others) are discussed, most o [...]


  • Adolfo

    El libro relata como Disney refuerza los estereotipos creados en las sociedades del american way of life. Los del ”tercer mundo” siempre son gente media estúpida, infantiles y tontos además sin ni una educación. Ellos viven como en la época de los recolectores no saben el valor de sus riquezas, ya sean inmateriales o materiales. Son los patos los que se presentan como grandes civilizadores. Otra cosa de lo que trata es de la asexualidad de los patos, además que nadie tiene padres, jajja [...]


  • Marie

    Although the overreaction because of the excess of fantasy and the apparent defense of the capitalism in Disney comics is too notorious and sometimes it can be a source of hilarity, this book is perfect for all the people who want to understand the ways of popular culture and mass media theory in the 1970s.Mattelart and Dorfman don't deny their marxist background and while they even reach the point of calling Disney an enemy of Latin America's society, some of the points are actually smart criti [...]


  • Mjhancock

    Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart present a Marxist critique of Disney Comics, under the argument that its representations are composed of the everyday form of our social oppression. Each chapter addresses a different facet of the Disney method. The introductions and forwards set up the cultural context of the book's original publication, that of the Chilean unrest of the 1970s. The first chapter addresses parental roles is Disney comics, or rather the lack thereof; every male is an uncle or ne [...]


  • Dominick

    I can't really quarrel with any of the main points this book raises, except to say that they seem to me to miss the point somewhat. Actually, I can quarrel more than that. Valid enough as the observations here are in broad strokes, they are also ultimately, I believe, overly reductive--not surprising, I suppose, given the ideological and polemical aims of the authors. Indeed, the polemical style occasionally interferes with intellectual objectivity. Of course, they're not really trying to be int [...]


  • Sookie

    Child fantasy, although created by adults, becomes the exclusive reserve of children. There is another way of infantalizing others and exonerating one's own larcenous behavior. Imperialism likes to promote an image of itself as being the impartial judge of the interests of the people, and their liberating angel.Since the child identifies with his counterpart in the magazine, he contributes to his own colonization. The rebellion of the little folk i the comics is sensed as a model for the child's [...]


  • Carolyn

    This is an interesting take on comic books; using marxism to critique the allegory that Donald duck/Disney is an agent of American Imperialism.The authors take a passionate stance with regard Disney and mimicking the dominated / dominator character binary that comics over simplify in order to create an unmistaken message in the caricature does exactly to Disney which they proclaim Disney is doing; using comics to subvert but instead of repressing children, Disney is actually an agent to undermin [...]


  • tom bomp

    interesting book. definitely one of my favourite works off cultural studies I 've seen. written in an anti imperialist context it looks at how Disney comics uphold bourgeois ideas about where wealth comes from, for example,that support capitalist ideas in children. notably,Disney's treatment of indigenous populations is shown to be horrifying and completely support white saviour myths and romantic ideas of colonialism. also talked about is how Disney restricts childhood imagination to consumptio [...]


  • Laura Cáceres

    "Rico McPato es el tío Sam" decía el abuelo de mi pareja. En eso se resumiría el texto. Y es bueno saber y verificar que personajes de la infancia son colonialización permanente, pues los autores al hacer una denuncia sólo querían ir a una liberación antes de que ocurriese el golpe de Estado en Chile, y esto es interesante, pues es una denuncia abierta a lo que Disney sigue haciendo (aunque hoy en día habría que ver qué tanto ha abierto su gama para no caer en colonialismos). Me encant [...]


  • Bernard Norcott-mahany

    This book, written by two professors from Chile, who were supporters of the Allende regime before it got overthrown, is an examination of the subtext of the Disney comic output. Though the title suggests it is mainly aimed at Donald Duck, it also looks at Mickey Mouse and his bourgeois ways. The most fascinating point I thought was the observation that though there are aunts and uncles in the Disney comic book world, there are no parents. We never see the mom or dad of Huey, Dewey and Louie, Don [...]


  • Gabriel Azevedo

    an enlightening read on media, the messages behind it, and how it influences culture. my only criticism is that the digital formats you find online (in some dubious ways) are obnoxious to read but im sure physical copies are fine. highly recommended even if it is a seemingly niche topic--i think nearly anyone can get quite a lot out of it.


  • Ornella

    Too Marxist for me, but it has some interesting ideas.


  • Rodrigo

    Fundamental para entender el mundo. Si bien es cierto que se nota un poco obsoleto, con discursos muy de izquierda de la segunda mitad del siglo pasado (evidentemente en medio del ambiente anti imperialista del Chile de Allende) y algunas posturas extremistas y francamente fundamentalistas, el análisis de Dorfman y Mattelart sobre la influencia (¿o dominio?) de la cultura estadounidense en los países subdesarrollados, especialmente los latinoamericanos, es fascinante, sobre todo porque tendem [...]


  • Spicy T AKA Mr. Tea

    What a great content analysis of Donald Duck comics from a Chilean point of view as the democratically elected Allende government was coming into power only to have nightmare of Pinochet emerge quickly with full backing and support of the US. Dorfman and Mattelart cut away the propaganda and expose the duck and the Disnified world they live in as one that reproduces negative stereotypes through a US colonialist lens all the while being peddled to people in Latin America as some innocent, child's [...]


  • Adrián Sánchez

    Que libro tan malo, se supone que Disney mediante unas tiras cómicas del Rico McPato estaba subliminalmente sugiriendo el imperialismo norteamericano, aún si esto fuera cierto ¿acaso está queriendo decir que latinoamérica carece del intelecto necesario para permanecer "soberana"? ¿qué solución ofrece el autor en este libro? ¿imponer un socialismo? bueno, es evidente que este tipo de libros solo servía de propaganda para la época, esa en la que habían derrocado a Allende, es simplemen [...]


  • Lane

    I may have power read it, but that doesn't mean it wasn't fascinating. Ariel Dorfman writes a Marxist interpretation of Disney's Donald Duck comics while in exile from his native Argentina during the height of the Cold War. The characters were all familiar with look a little less innocent after reading this, Disney has succeeded in creating a subtle and very dangerous tool of neo-colonial influence. IS NOTHING SACRED?!


  • Leonardo

    Esta bueno. No sé mucho que decir. Me quedó un poco extraño, la verdad es que yo no leí nunca al pato Donald ni estoy familiarizado con la cultura Disney en general. También tiene algunas cosas que quedan fuera de época leyendolo 40 años después de su publicación. Está bien, es un ejemplo de colonialismo y de ideología, pero me parece que hoy día hay mejores cosas para leer al respecto.


  • Bill

    It's an interesting enough idea - reading and examining the pro-imperialist leanings that may be present in South American Disney comics - but very dry if you're not the sort of person who is, you know, interested in things like South American imperialism. Decidedly not for me, but I'm still willing to give it a good ol' 2 star "it was okay" for the attempt.


  • Osvaldo

    I am hard pressed to think of a more uncompromising work of criticism. Utterly fantastic, both in content and in its place as a historical-cultural artifact of both Chile and pernicious foreign policy of the United States.


  • Aaron

    Highly accessible, plenty of humor, solid analysis, if somewhat dated in its direct arguments, but highly relevant in its meta argument.


  • Kevin

    whoa


  • Jesus Saldivia

    Too much conspiracy for me.


  • Igor

    American (cultural) imperialism trough comic books of Walt Disney.


  • Francisco Javier Argel

    glorioso


  • Oriana

    Probably this book will be boring but fascinating too.


  • Tinck

    I read it in Slovene.


  • David

    a Chilean analysis written during the Allende years.
