MEDIA REVIEWS

'There were a number of other books which captured my attention and earned my admiration in this year rich in notable theatre books. Among them were Heinz Kosok's Theatre of War (Palgrave Macmillan), a comprehensive and revelatory survey of all the plays from 1909 to 1998 dealing with the First World War' Jeffery Richards, Professor of Cultural History, Lancaster University, 2007 STR Theatre Book Prize Judge

'The Theatre of War is an extremely thorough, highly rewarding, and inspiring book, which should initiate further studies in a hitherto neglected field.' - Herbert Foltinek, Sprachkunst: Beitrage zur Literaturwissenschaft

'...a valuable comprehensive survey...' - The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies
