It is the only book of its kind on the subject, and a valuable source of production information." -Theatre Journal... an excellent discussion of the aesthetics of theater." -ChoiceThe escalation of the war in Vietnam in the mid-1960s unleashed worldwide protest. Playwrights grappled with the complexities of post-imperialist politics and with the problems of creating effective political theatre in the television age.
