This annotated bibliography concentrates on books dealing with an important category of literature for youths, that of war and peace. The number of books for young people on this subject is surprisingly large, yet it is often ignored. Though such books don't form the center of children's literature, they do represent an important portion of it, revealing to children vital truths about the human condition and how nobly humans can act under extreme hardship. The book includes a number of different types of works dealing with war and peace, e.g., allegories and parables, picture books, poetry, biographies, Revolutionary and Civil War books, tales of the Holocaust and Hiroshima, and stories dealing with pacifism. Each entry includes author, title, publishing data, and age level, as well as an annotation that assesses the entry's pertinence, quality, and value. In addition to this bibliography for youths, there is an annotated bibliography of materials for adults that covers how to discuss the subject of war and peace with young people. The volume is also extensively cross-referenced and indexed, providing access to authors, illustrators, and titles, subject entries such as warriors and pacifists, and categories of material such as parables or poetry. It will be an important reference work for teachers dealing with the subject of conflict and for courses in education and the social sciences, and a worthwhile addition to college, university, and public libraries.
