A welcome addition to the field of dramaturgy, this excellent reference book was created to serve as a resource text for students of theater history, dramatic theory, and theater esthetics. The dictionary includes nearly 400 entries and supplements general theater encyclopedias such as The Cambridge Guide to the Theatre, ed. by Martin Banham (new ed., CH, Feb'96) and historical surveys like Oscar G. Brockett's History of the Theatre (7th ed., 1995). The dictionary does not provide entries for specific people, plays, or theaters, but it discusses the origin, meaning, historical significance, and dramaturgical implications of theatrical terms. Although some entries define terms briefly, many consist of brief essays on the significance of complex ideas or theories. Cross-references are printed in boldface. Recommended for graduate students and faculty, but also valuable for college and large public libraries. M. J. Antonelli; University of North Texas
