Understanding Contemporary American Drama, 1987 by William Herman was conceived as a guide (as are all of the books in this series) for "non-academic" readers in their appreciation of Five dramatists:

  • Sam Shepard
  • David Rabe
  • David Mamet
  • Ed Bullins
  • Lanford Wilson

Following an introductory chapter on "Theater and Drama in America, 1964-1984, each of the above dramatists is discussed:

  • Biography and Approaches to the Work
  • Major Works
  • Other Works

The final chapter is entitled "Playwrights at Work: Other Voices" and  comments briefly on:

  • Jack Gelber
  • Amiri Baraka
  • Arthur Kopit
  • Adrienne Kennedy
  • Jean-Claude Van Itallie
  • Marsha Norman

The hard cover book includes a bibliography and an Index, evidently missed in the book binding and carefully inserted in a special envelope attached to the end flyleaf.

The book is in excellent condition, text and dust jacket--just a suggestion of foxing.  The book measures 5 inches by 7 1/4 inches by 3/4 inch and has 271 pages.
