Children and Propaganda, Paperback / softback Book

Children and Propaganda Paperback / softback


This volume aims to demonstrate how the literature of youth has been subverted at key points in the 20th-century European history to promote the ideologies of a dominant political regime.

Focusing primarily on the specific area of children's fiction, it examines the propaganda writing of Vichy France; the cult of seafaring in Nazi Germany; and images of Empire and decolonization in France between 1930 and 1962.

Each study analyzes a significant body of primary material, identifying thematic and formal paradigms characterizing the field of investigation, In addition to close textual study, works are located within the wider contexts and discourses that shaped their production, dissemination and reception.
