Breaking new ground for women stage directors
International Women Stage Directors - Anne Fliotsos,Wendy Vierow

Editors Wendy Vierow and Anne Fliotsos break new ground with this collection of essays on international women stage directors. As with their first collaboration, this very readable resource is the first ever published of its kind on the topic. Each essay is organized in a uniform way that allows the reader to find information quickly and to make comparisons between countries easily. The foreward by Roberta Levitow of the Sundance Theatre Program provides an insightful commentary. The 24 chapters cover the status of women's theatre in countries on every populated continent. The final chapter that Vierow and Fliotsos co-wrote on the US is a tour de force summation on the topic at home, which reminds us that there is much innovation and progress being made by women directors in this fiercely competitive field. This is a must-have for anyone interested in theatre, women's studies, or world cultures.

Book of Peoples of the World: A Guide to Cultures - Wade Davis (Editor), Catherine Herbert Howell (Editor), K. David Harrison (Editor), Contribution by National Geographic Society A production of National Geographic and up to that organization's usual quality: beautiful photos and informative (if too short) articles.

And an example of just how freakin' complex this old world of ours is.
