This richly illustrated volume brings together internationally known contributors to examine the ongoing influence of violence and war on childrens literature by studying the childhood experiences of authors writing for children, the children represented in war stories, and the experiences of children who make up the stories readership. Under Fire opens timely avenues in literary studies and encourages those who work with young readers to envision children s studies in new ways.
