Searching an online book catalog will reveal that in the past two years alone, more than 30 collections were published that focus on "minority"AHispanic, Asian American, Jewish American, Latin American, and African AmericanAplaywrights. In their new collection, Swanson (theater, Univ. of Minnesota) and Murray (theater, Univ. of Wisconsin) make a good contribution to this growing field. They've selected 15 little-known plays to highlight, based on the following criteria: all were written after 1950, all deal directly with the experience of race and/or ethnicity, and all were written in an "accessible" style. An obvious advantage of the current emphasis on multiculturalism is that it brings "new" (read: neglected) authors into the mainstream of literature and literary studies; happily, this work continues that project. This is a textbook, so there is also supplementary material (definitions, bibliographies, and other explanatory material) to help the reader understand the scripts. Recommended for public and academic libraries.ASusan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta
