This is the fifth issue of the IAFOR Journal of Literature & Librarianship, and a common theme among this year’s six papers is how literature addresses issues of justice and injustice, be they personal, societal or international. The issue reminds us of the vital role that both literature and its criticism play in bringing people and institutions to account for their beliefs and actions.
