MacFadyen further analyses Soviet animation through phenomenology, arguing that the latter is a viable alternative not only to dogmatic Marxism but also to the ideological vacuum of post-Soviet times. The book includes a comprehensive bibliography and filmography as well as a rich collection of images.
Political positions come and go but talking animals, evil witches, and mythical princesses endure. David MacFadyen argues that Soviet socialist animation between 1936 and 1999 was a fundamentally emotional, not propagandistic, enterprise that requires a reconsideration of Soviet art in general. Of particular interest are the relationships between realist Russian animation and USSR politics and the lasting success of Disney in the Soviet Union.
