Disney's World: A Biography

Leonard Mosley, Author Stein and Day $18.95 (330p) ISBN 978-0-8128-3073-6
In this absorbing biography of the man who revolutionized the animated cartoon and whose theme parks still lure millions of visitors annually, Mosley (Lindbergh, Dulles, Marshall) does a superb job of recreating the saga of a talented Midwesterner who struggled to the top of his profession and, once there, ruled his studio with benevolent paternalism, yet never allowed others to share screen credits despite their contributions and abused his co-workers when the mood was on him. Although employees' salaries were low, Disney was shattered when his staff went on strike, and he turned into a bitter, anti-labor Red-baiter. But in his work he maintained integrity and invariably fought for the highest standards, even teetering on the brink financially to ensure excellence. Photos. December
