About this book

Using a performance studies lens, this book is a study of performance in the post-9/11 context of the so-called war on terror. It analyzes conventional theatre, political protest, performance art and other sites of performance to unpack the ways in which meaning has been made in the contemporary global sociopolitical environment.

Reviews

' Brady's wide-ranging discussions of anti-war performance, of virtual warfare and military training, and of the Bush and Obama administrations are excellent examples of the kind of politically engaged, comparative scholarship that performance studies can offer.' Eero Lane, University of New York, USA
