Taxel, Joel
Curriculum Inquiry, v14 n1 p7-55 Spr 1984
A Marxian analysis of the form and content of children's Revolutionary War fiction shows how characteristics of these materials are related to the socioeconomic and historical milieu from which they come. Structural similarities between these novels and Western films reveal historically rooted bourgeois attitudes, social values, and ideologies. (TE)
