About this book


In the second edition of her New American Dramatists Ruby Cohn carries her panoramic survey to 1990. Not only does she augment the existing chapters on Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway, but she adds new material on women playwrights as well as Asian-American dramatists. With the emergence of David Mamet and Sam Shepard as major playwrights, she contrasts them for mutual illumination.
