Politics and ideology in children's literature /
Marian Thérèse Keyes & Áine McGillicuddy, editors.
This volume examines how children's books retain the ability to transform, activate, indoctrinate or empower their readers. From utopian and dystopian voices to children's literature written in response to war situations to critiques of misogynistic assumptions that normalize or eroticize violence, these essays demonstrate the potential of children's literature to radically challenge cultural norms.
