During the final months of his life, Walt Disney was consumed with the world-wide problems of cities. His development concept at the time of his death on December 15th, 1966 would be his team’s conceptual response to the ills of the inner cities and the sprawl of the megalopolis: the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow or, as it became known, EPCOT. This beautifully written, instantly engrossing volume focuses on the original concept of EPCOT, which was conceived by Disney as an experimental community of about 20,000 people on the Disney World property in central Florida. With its radial plan, 50-acre town center enclosed by a dome, themed international shopping area, greenbelt, high-density apartments, satellite communities, monorail and underground roads, the original EPCOT plan is reminiscent of post-war Stockholm and the British New Towns, as well as today's transit-oriented development theory. Unfortunately, Disney himself did not live long enough to witness the realization of his model city. However, EPCOT's evolution into projects such as the EPCOT Center and the town of Celebration displays a remarkable commitment by the Disney organization to the original EPCOT philosophy, one which continues to have relevance in the fields of planning and development.

But Disney’s dark side is also explored: his disputed parentage; industrial disputes; his work for the FBI; and his anti-Communist and allegedly racist and antisemitic views. The company Disney built is today stronger than ever, encompassing not only the ongoing legacy of Disney animation, but also acting as the guardian of other well-loved creative endeavours, such as Pixar, The Muppets, Marvel Comics and now Star Wars.

The Lion King and other blockbuster hits; ‘From Eisner to Iger’ – the corporate battle for the soul of Disney; ‘Disney Goes Digital’ – from Pixar to Star Wars, via Marvel Comics and The Muppets, Disney buyy up other studios, themselves often enough inspired by the original.

Ever wondered how Walt Disney and Ernest Hemingway rose to stardom? Walter Elias Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois on December 5, 1901. He was of German-American ancestry and was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He developed a love of drawing, and by 18, he became a draftsman at a Kansas City art studio. His very first job in the art world was at a small company where he met Ub Iwerks, who turned out to be a fantastic animator later in his life. So many years after his demise, people endure to clutch his philosophies, and his conceptions, recalling him for everything he's done for them. This memoir of Ernest Miller Hemingway who was an American playwright and journalist is a remarkable piece of reading stuff for the readers. His reasonable and modest panache had a robust impact on twentieth century literature, while his existence of adventure and his community appearance will keep on having an effect on the subsequent generations to come. Hemingway shaped most of his literary work between the middle of nineteen twenties and the middle of nineteen fifties and earned the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He printed seven novels, six short story assemblages, and two works based on facts. Three of the novels inscribed by him, four assortments of brief stories, and three works based on facts were made available after his death. Numerous of his works are measured as masterpieces of American prose. For more interesting facts you must read the biographies. Grab your biography books now!
