Alex Nikolavitch and Felix Ruiz’s The Disney Bros.: The Fabulous Story of Walt and Roy is a vividly illustrated, probing portrait of the life and creative genius of Walt Disney that recounts the ways he transformed American animation and entertainment, as well as the role his brother Roy played in managing the money and restraining Walt’s financial and creative extravagances. But the book also captures Walt’s dark side: his bullying paternalism, rejection of employee grievances and outright union-busting. In this 11-page excerpt, Walt and Roy face a strike by Disney Studios after staff salaries are cut at the beginning of WWII. The Disney Bros.: The Fabulous Story of Walt and Roy by Alex Nikolavitch and Felix Ruiz will be published by NBM in December. Click the image above to view the full excerpt.
