What People are Saying About This
This book is long overdue. Those of us committed to the performance paradigm have not had, in a single source, a collection of ethnodramas that could be used for teaching and instruction. Saldaña's anthology gives us this book. . . .[His] magnificent introduction locates this field in its proper literatures, gives the reader a vocabulary of terms (plot, story line, dramatic structure, character, scenography) and a typology of forms. . . .Johnny Saldaña and his collaborators are to be thanked for giving us the platform from which this new form of critical qualitative inquiry can be launched.
