Unique in any western language, this is a comprehensive survey of the history of Kabuki; how it is written, produced, staged, performed, and its place in world theater. Edited by a leading western authority on Kabuki, it features contributions by established experts as well as younger scholars now entering the field, and includes one Kabuki play in translation as an illustration of Kabuki techniques. The book covers four essential areas - history, performance, theaters, and plays - and thus is an invaluable resource for the study of one of the world's great theatrical forms.
