Peace and Social Justice since 1953 by Susan C. Griffith, published
by Scarecrow Press, 2013.
"The first book to examine the award as well as its winners and honor books. In this volume, Susan C. Griffith reviews and synthesizes Addams’s ideas and legacy, so that her life and accomplishments can be used as a focal point for exploring issues of social justice through children’s literature.
