Watermeier is professor of Theater at the University of Toledo. He is a past recipient of Guggenheim and Folger Shakespeare Library Fellowships.From Library Journal:
With other histories of American theater now out of print (among them Barnard Hewitt's Theatre USA and Garff B. Wilson's Three Hundred Years of American Drama and Theatre), this excellent work fills a gap while also taking the opportunity to expand "America" to include all of North America. Londre (theater, Univ. of Missouri, Kansas City) and Watermeier (theater, Univ. of Toledo) open the text with chapters devoted to theater of the Maya, the Aztec, and a number of North American tribes, then expand to "new Spain," "new France," the American Colonies, and the Caribbean; and continue with the inclusion of Canada and Mexico up to the present. Like many other surveys that try to cover such enormous amounts of material, this book leaves us wanting more, but it offers an excellent introduction and far-ranging coverage. Recommended for all libraries.?Susan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta
