Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

This book includes 21 short essays selected from papers presented at the 12th Biennial Congress of the International Research Society for Children's Literature, held in Stockholm in 1995. The essays cast a wide net, and each reader is certain to find at least a few of interest. Broken into six sections, they examine changes since World War II relating to: (1) the development of children's literature theory; (2) the shifting boundaries between children's and adult literature; (3) the effects of postmodernism on the content and forms of children's literature; (4) the emergence of new types of literature for young people, such as horror and multicultural literature; (5) aspects of children's and young adult literature in the United States, Quebec, Germany, and Taiwan; and (6) a reconceptualization of the past, specifically with regard to literature in totalitarian and post-totalitarian societies and to British children's books of WWII. According to the editor's introduction, as a result of all these changes, "children's literature has become more complex, more ambiguous, more noncommittal, but also more interesting, more colorful, more diversified." This is a recommended purchase both for scholarly collections and for practitioners who want to take time out from their demanding daily schedules to read about children's and young adult literature.?Ann D.
