Voices of the Other offers a variety of approaches to children's literature that includes discussions of cultural appropriation, race theory, pedagogy as a colonialist activity, and multiculturalism. The 18 essays divide into three sections: Theory, Colonialism, and Postcolonialism. Section 1 sets the theoretical framework for postcolonial studies, while section 2 presents discussions of the colonialist mind-set in children's and young adult's texts from 1900 onward. Here, works by writers of animal stories in Canada, The US, and Britain, works of early Australian colonialist literature, and Burnett's A little Princess are scrutinized through postmodern readings. Section 3 deals directly with contemporary texts for children that manifest both a postcolonial and a neocolonial content, and features studies of children's literature from Canada, Australia, Africa, The Caribbean, and The United States.
