He is the author and  editor of numerous books on modern drama, African American theatre, dramatic theory and criticism, and acting, including <i>A History of Modern Drama: Volume I </i>(2012), and <i>Theatre in Theory: An Anthology</i> (editor, 2008), both published by Wiley Blackwell.
<p>Exploring a remarkable breadth of topics and analytical approaches, <i>A History of Modern Drama</i>: <i>Volume II</i> offers an essential resource about the dramatic works, authors, and transitional events and movements that shaped world drama from 1960 to the dawn of the new millennium.</p> <p>The volume provides global coverage of both English and non-English dramas – including works from Africa and Asia to the Middle East – and examines the influence of a wide range of writers, from mainstream icons such as Harold Pinter and Edward Albee, to more unorthodox works by authors such as Peter Weiss and Sarah Kane. It explores essential issues of theatricality and dramaturgy, while drawing from the fields of art, literature, society, politics, culture, and philosophy to trace the methodologies of world drama during the modern era.</p> This highly anticipated second volume completes a comprehensive two-part work examining modern world drama. It combines wide-ranging topics with original theories, international perspective, and philosophical and cultural context, and alongside Volume I, offers readers complete coverage of a full century in the evolution of global dramatic literature.
