Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Winston (drama, U. Of Warwick) begins by outlining an argument in favor of using drama and traditional stories in the moral education of primary-aged children. He then argues for the moral exploration of fairy tales through participatory forms of education drama. After describing his ethnographic approach to field work, he concludes with three case studies of his work in staging dramas based on various literary versions of traditional tales from Indian, British, and Native American sources. Distributed by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
