For courses in introduction to theatre or theatre appreciation, this text acquaints students with the theatre--its artistic and social functions, its development, and how each of the theatre arts functions as a unit.

Oscar G. Brockett enjoys an international reputation as a theatre historian. A Distinguished Scholar honoree of the American Society of Theatre Research, he has received career achievement awards from: the Association for Theatre in Higher Education; the United States Institute for Theatre Technology; and is a recipient of the Robert Lewis Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Theatre Research.

He has also served as President of the American Theatre Association, Dean of the College of Fine Arts at University of Texas, Editor of Theatre Journal, and on the editorial board of the Asian Theatre Journal. He held the prestigious University of Texas Z.T. Scott Family Chair in Drama and was the Director of the Center for Dramatic and Performance Studies for several years. Dr. Brockett is the author of many articles in leading journals and has written several books, including History of the Theatre and The Essential Theatre. He is currently a Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, and the Dean of the Fellows of the American Theatre. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you have a Theater degree from any American college in the last decade, then you already own this book. This is the definitive text on Theater History. Brockett is the authority. No other comprehensive book on "general" theater history comes close. If you want the book that is on every theater historian's shelf, referenced in every Theater thesis or dissertation, and the text for every Theater History course in the nation, then order this. "

I bought the last edition of The Essential Theatre (7th) for a class. It was easy to read and covered just about everything one could hope for in an introductory text. Now I'm a graduate student studying theatre. I bought the new edition to review the material I had a few years ago and was surprised to find a number of exciting new features including greater use of the internet to expand on subjects covered in the text. This book was very good before but with so many new features and the same authoritative coverage it's a pure joy and "essential" reading for anyone who truly cares about the Theatre. "

Great savings over college book store. The David Tennant Hamlet photo on the cover is truly perfect. This book is required for an introductory theatre class at the local community college. "
