Call#: Van Pelt Library BJ1547 .N48 1994
Conduct books are defined as texts intended for young readers that prescribe "an ethical, Christian-based code of behavior, and that normally includes gender role definitions." Consquently, general works of etiquette and advice literature are not included. The bibliography is preceeded by a long bibliographic entry on the topic.
