Japanese Theatre, by Faubion Bowers, presents a full historical account for Westerners of the theatre arts that have flourished for centuries in Japan. “This book,” say Mr. Bowers, “is a survey of what theatre arts exist there today and how they arose. Because Kabuki is the dominant type of drama in Japan today, and has been for three centuries, I have given most attention to it.”

This book, with its many excellent photographs, is a permanent addition to the West’s knowledge of the exotic, exciting theatre of Japan and its tradition of great acting.
