Editorial Reviews

"This valuable collection does more than break new ground; it also surveys territory already traversed, reassessing earlier debates in light of more recent thinking .... a volume that is unusually rich in its coverage, its quality, and its capacity to stimulate thought." Robert Evans, Comparative Drama
