Editorial Reviews

?Mendel Kohansky's The Disreputable Profession is a social history of the actor in Western culture. The paradoxical role of the actor as sinner and saint from social, religious, moral and political perspectives is studied to support the author's theory that actors have always been treated as a group apart, with a mixture of contempt, fascination, and awe. ... Extensive research has produced a book full of carefully preserved anecdotal material as recorded by contemporary chroniclers and gossips. ... Insight, understanding, and perspective for professionals as well as for laymen are provided in this work.?-Broadside
