Loren Kruger is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and Cornell University, and teaches the history and theory of drama and other cultural forms at the University of Chicago.

'... the book presents a rich canvas of Brechtian theatre and presents material that is new, in a new way. Both Brecht scholars and scholars interested in political theatre (not only in the GDR and South Africa) will find this volume of great interest and offering a rewarding and complex analysis.' Monatshefte '... stimulating ... Kruger helps open up fascinating territory with which we should all be better acquainted. ... Informative and thought-provoking ...' New Theatre Quarterly 'Kruger excellently explicates the plays she uses as textual representations for these culturally discursive movements. Each chapter is unpacked through the close analysis of multiple dramatic pieces or theoretical publications, and the even balance between the text and its contexts is maintained throughout.' Medienwissenschaft 'I particularly recommend reading the passages on Muller's plays and theatre productions ... The book provides valuable insight into complex socio-cultural realities and the 'real history' of Marxist-orientated critical intellectuals ... a highly recommendable contribution ...' African Theatre
