Review:

"Zlata Fuss Phillips pr sentiert in ihrer vorbildlichen Bibliographie eine spannend zu lesende Kollektivbiographie zu deutschsprachigen Kinder- und Jugendbuchautoren. Sie liefert nicht nur detailliertes biographisches Material, sondern auch kommentierende Inhaltsangaben, pr zise Informationen zu der Art der Illustrationen und jeweils einen nachgewiesenen Standort eines jeden Buches." (Aus dem Antiquariat, Frankfurt/M., Nr. 6, 2002) "Nicht nur als literarbiographisches und bibliographisches Hilfsmittel, auch als geschichtliche Dokumentation zum Nationalsozialismus sollte 'German children's and youth literature in exile 1933-1950' in keiner Universit tsbibliothek, literaturwissenschaftlichen, historischen, kunsthistorischen Fachbibliothek sowie ffentlichen Bibliothek fehlen; f r KJL-Wissenschaftler und -Bibliographen, f r (kunst)historisch und literarisch interessierte Lehrer, Studenten und Laien stellt es eine bisher noch nicht in dieser Genauigkeit und Vollst ndigkeit existierende Quelle dar." (Informationsmittel f r Bibliotheken (online), Stuttgart, Ausg. 2, 2002) .".. liegt nun dieses hervorragende Nachschlagewerk vor, das eine Zusammenschau und weitergehende Untersuchungen zum Thema gibt." (Zeitschrift f r Geschichtswissenschaft, Berlin, Nr. 7, 2003) "The handbook, clearly laid out and organized, of absolutely professional quality, significant and sound, is a most valuable basic tool for scholars as well as teachers interested in children's and youth literature written and published in exile." (Unterrichtspraxis, Cookeville, No. 2, Fall 2003) "A reference work of the highest quality..." (Children's Literature Association Quarterly, Charlotte, No. 2, Summer 2003) "Dieses Handbuch wird sich zu einem Standardwerk der deutschen Kinder- und Jugendliteratur entwickeln. Diese Fundgrube sei allen Buch-, Bibliotheks- und Literaturwissenschaftlern dringend zur Lekt re empfohlen." (Bibliothek Forschung und Praxis, M nchen, Nr. 3, 2003)
