The Arab-Israeli Conflict as Depicted in Children's and Young Adult Non-Fiction Literature.
Rock, Marlene
Although the Arab-Israeli conflict has been ongoing for half a century, there exists no definitive annotated bibliography of relevant, educational, and representative non-fiction works for children and young adults. Worldwide interest in the Arab-Israeli conflict has prompted an increasing demand by librarians, students, scholars, and the general public for materials containing historical background and diverse points of view on the topic. While there is a large quantity of adult material on the topic, it is not covered sufficiently in juvenile literature. This document provides an annotated bibliography of 103 works concerning the history and background of the conflict, the various wars, works by and about important figures, personal narratives and memoirs, interviews, pictorial works, stories, and poems. This compilation provides a resource for librarians, educators, and parents to assist schoolchildren's understanding of the conflict by supplying simple explanations about war, death, and killing. The compilation will also assist collection development and acquisition department librarians. The selection checklist, and author, title, and subject indices are included. (Contains 87 references.)
