American Drama in Social Context, 1971 by Morris Freedman analyses the plays of Major American Dramatists in a Framework of Social Value:

Eugene O'Neill, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, T. S. Eliot, Arthur Kopit and LeRoi Jones plus many others.

First edition! Hard cover.

Such concerns as Puritanism, Jewishness, minority problems, liberal impulses in musicals, violence and shock overlay Freeman's evaluation.

This book is in very good vintage condition-- no marks, no tears, strong binding, very little shelf wear, some wear on binding ends of dust jacket plus one slight tear on the reverse. The pages generally show some browning with age, and there is a strange red discoloration of the top of the pages as viewed looking down.

The book measures 5 inches by 8 1/2 inches by 3/4 inch and has 143 pages.
