Review of Siting the Other: Re-visions of Marginality in Australian and Anglophone Canadian Drama, edited by Marc Maufort
Marc Maufort introduces this book as a 'sequel' to his earlier collection of essays, Staging Difference: Cultural Pluralism in American Theatre and Drama (Peter Lang, 1995). Just recently, he published another meaty critical anthology (co-edited with Franca Bellarsi), Crucible of Cultures: Anglophone Drama at the Dawn of a New Millennium (Peter Lang, 2002), which he positions as the 'third phase of a trilogy' devoted to contemporary drama and multiculturalism in the (developed) English-speaking world (13). By any measure, these books collectively make a substantial contribution to scholarship in the field, bringing together new critical essays by highly-regarded scholars and, to a lesser extent, those not often found among the 'usual suspects' included in such books.
