Carlsen, G. Robert
This second revised edition of a guide to books for adolescents is designed for use by parents, teachers, and librarians and has been rewritten to reflect the most recent developments in education and society. New chapters discuss reading rights or censorship, drama, literature by and about women, and science fiction and fantasy. Other chapters cover the teenager's reading experience, the teenager's world, the stages of reading development, subliterature or popular culture, the adolescent novel, the popular adult book, the modern classics, and the place of the classics, poetry, biography, and expository nonfiction. The annotated lists of available and recommended books have also been completely revised and updated. The appendix contains a listing of bibliographic tools and sources for adolescent books. (MKM)
