Comprehensive survey of the history of animation, tracing the rise of early techniques in the 1900s through the development of processes such as cell drawings, stop-motion, CGI and 3-D animation, ending with the work of the studios behind contemporary successes like Shrek and Toy Story. While giving much space to the Disney empire, the book also examines animation in Japan, China, Asia and Russia, and discusses animation in the context of cable TV, wartime propaganda, music promotion and anime.
