Race, Gender, and Nation on the Early American Stage

Sarah E. Chinn

  • Contends and demonstrates that theatre is the realm through which white working-class men's viewpoints and values can most accurately be seen
  • Shows how theatre helped to create a new, American national identity seperate from British culture
  • Uses a large archive of primary sources, including many plays that have received little critical attention
