The Outsiders of the American Revolution: The Selective Tradition in Children's Fiction.
Taxel, Joel
Interchange on Educational Policy, v12 n2-3 p206-28 1981
Textbooks and children's literature tend to mirror society. A study was made of race and class bias in 32 children's novels about the American Revolution published between 1889 and 1976. The treatment of blacks, women, and lower-class groups not only reflects but also perpetuates bias. (JN)
