New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature: Utopian Transformations
Bradford, Clare, Mallan, Kerry M., Stephens, John, & McCallum, Robyn (2008) New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature: Utopian Transformations. Palgrave Macmillan, London.
New World Orders shows how texts fro children and young people have responded to the cultural, economic, and political movements of the last 15 years. With a focus on international children's texts produced between 1988 and 2006, the authors discuss how utopian and dystopian tropes are pressed into service to project possible futures for child readers. The book considers what these texts have to say about globalisation, neocolonialism, environmental issues, pressures on families and communities, and the idea of the posthuman.
