Pressestimmen'Jenny Spencer has written a dynamic, original and knowledgeable study. She probes Bond's plays deeply and is responsive to contemporary trends in drama criticism.' Ruby Cohn 'Bond is arguably one of the most important dramatists writing in England over four decades ... Professor Spencer appreciates Bond in the full sense of that verb: she consistently views him in his historical context (not only political but theatrical), and she understands his socialist project for the stage ... Surveying plays from the Bond canon against this fully defined background, from the Bond canon against this fully defined background. Professor Spencer's book is a seminal work on contemporary theatre.' Jill Levenson
