The Historical Dictionary of Japanese Traditional Theatre covers all four genres (no, kyogen, bunraku, and kabuki), providing information on nearly every aspect, including actors, theatres, companies, history, makeup, costumes, masks, biographies, theories, training, music, religion, criticism, and many more. This is done through hundreds of dictionary entries arranged alphabetically with abundant cross-references, a general introduction, a chronology, and a special glossary of all terms mentioned in the text but not provided with their own entries, all of which can be supplemented by consulting the most extensive bibliography of English-language Japanese theatre books, articles, and websites presently available.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Leiter's work reflects his deep knowledge....recommended.... * American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007) *
...excellent....The author should be commended for recognizing the need for a dictionary of Japanese traditional theater terms and having the patience and perseverance to compile such a compendium....I will be sending my own students to this wonderful reference book. * Asian Theatre Journal, Vol. 24, No. 2 (Fall 2007) *
Leiter (theater, City U. of New York-Brooklyn College) considers the four principal traditional, or classical, genres of Japanese theater: no and kyogen, which emerged in the 14th century; and bunraki and kabuki, which began at the beginning of the Edo era, 1603-1868. His introduction includes brief histories of each. The articles discuss playwrights, actors, theaters, plays, movements, and other aspects. An appendix translates play titles. * Reference and Research Book News *
