"This collection, while offering a mass of information about the period and its drama, also stands as a memorial.... The brave new days of the 1960s are past and it is good to have this book to remind us of them." --Japan TimesA major renaissance in Japanese theater occurred in the 1960s. During this period, the implications of Japan's prewar actions as well as its postwar materialistic course were interrogated with fierce intensity. Nowhere was the depth and dynamism of this cultural questioning more clearly expressed than in theater. Fueling the explosion of seminal theater activity that took place was the generation of young artists who are the focus of Alternative Japanese Drama. Foreword by J. Thomas Rimer
