Authors: Ariel Dorfman and Armand Mattelart
Publisher: International General (New York)
Printing Year: 1975 2nd Printing
Condition/Details: Bound in original wrappers with bright color illustration to front cover, this vintage volume is a scarce early printing of the classical popular study on cultural imperialism and children's literature that was first published in Chile in 1971 during the years of the Popular Unity government. Author and human rights activist Ariel Dorfman (currently Walter Hines Page Research Professor of Literature and Professor of Latin American Studies at Duke University) served as cultural advisor to President Salvador Allende during that time. The book was subsequently banned and burned.
The work is illustrated with a number of Disney comic strip drawings. The volume is in uncommonly well-preserved condition and shows very light external age/wear. It is solidly bound with clean pages. The book measures approximately 7" x 10 1/4" and contains 112 pages.
