-"Choice, July 1999
"This latest volume ...lives up to the high standards set by the previous volumes and continues to allow each country to define its own theatrical profile through the eyes of a native author...Because the encyclopedia is rich in specific detail--naming individuals, troupes, and forms, and giving dates, background material, influences, and analysis of evolution and change--it represents a starting point for any researcher, no matter how sophisticated.Recommended for academic and large public libraries."
-"Booklist, November 1998
"This set will be a refreshing journey into unfamiliar territory for researchers and a welcome addition to scholarly theatre collections."
"There is no current work of this magnitude ...an invaluable source of information.."
-Dorothy L. Swerdlove, New York Public Library
