Post-Imperial Brecht: Politics and Performance, East and South

  • Catherine M. Cole (a1)


Loren Kruger's Post-Imperial Brecht: Politics and Performance, East and South is an impressive transnational study of Brechtian theatre that is notable for its simultaneous breadth and depth. Kruger takes us far beyond nationalist frameworks, which have long dominated theatre studies. She also avoids the common pitfalls of “global” and comparative studies: sweeping generalizations that flatten historical specificity are not to be found in this book's 400 richly footnoted pages. Post-Imperial Brecht provides a precise and detailed study of the transnational flow of Brecht's ideas and plays between West and East Germany, and between Germany and South Africa, from the 1930s to the present.
