This bibliography examines literature in English for young people concerning the Indian subcontinent and associated areas, including Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It presents the perspectives of authors native to the region as well as non-native authors, and reflects the rich folklore and traditional culture of the subcontinent, its checkered history, and modern challenges. An introductory essay traces the development of children's literature in the region since 1947 and reviews major themes and trends in western children's literature about the subcontinent. The many entries are organized into chapters by country, which are then subdivided by genre. Further access is afforded by indexes of authors, illustrators, titles, and subjects. Annotations provide plot summary, thematic analysis, and literary evaluation and also assess sensitivity to multicultural and international concerns.

Society does not make it easy for young people, regardless of their sexual orientation, to find accurate, nonjudgmental information about homosexuality. It makes it even more difficult for young homosexuals to find positive role models in fiction either written or published expressly for them or - if published for adults - relevant to them and their lives. This book examines these issues and critically evaluates the body of literature published for young adults that offers homosexual themes and characters.
