  THE CAMBRIDGE GUIDE TO THEATRE -- NEW EDITION
CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, 1995
The Cambridge Guide to Theatre -- New Edition

Written by a team of international experts the Guide clearly depicts the dynamic interaction of performance traditions from all cultures in present day theatre. While saluting the history and traditions of "high" art in the theatre, the Guide also celebrates the importance of "low" art: the energy and animation that has infused popular theatre and popular entertainment for thousands of years.

The Guide, already well established as an authoritative source of information on all major playwrights and their works, theatre traditions theories, practitioners and events, has been rigorously updated for this new edition. The contemporaneity of the book has been maintained with a substantial number of new entries reflecting the rise of individual reputations within the theatres of various countries. Political changes have necessitated revisions, or even complete rewriting, of many country entries. Important new entries have been written to reinforce the recognition of the interface between the theatres of the world: east and west, north and south, modern and historical.
