The volume examines sixteen plays - eleven of which were lost until the author uncovered them in her research - from the period just before and during the Spanish-American War.

This history addresses conflicts between civic duty and family responsibility, racial prejudice, the roles of women and nationalism. One play frOm the period, Quince bajas!, is presented in its entirety.
