A survey of the whole course of Indian drama from its Sanskrit beginnings to the present, with emphasis in the modern period on the influence of Western models. "Professor Yajnik has produced an exceptionally valuable monograph, & his industry, catholicity & skill in collating & comparing deserve high praise. It must prove enlightening to the Western student & to his own countrymen, who have inherited so rich & deep a dramatic capacity, it cannot but prove at least as useful."--TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT.
