This is a timely book, coming as a "Bridie Revival" becomes more frequently discussed in theatre circles. Dr. Mardon has contributed to the revival of interest in this outstanding dramatist by producing this study in depth of the social themes and the characters who act out these dramatic conflicts between the individual and society which are shown in the six plays of James Bridie. Three pre- and three post-World War II plays have been selected to give the widest range of illustration from Bridie's repertoire - The Switchback (1928), The Anatomist (1930), The Last Trump (1938), with Dr. Angelus (1947), Daphne Laureola (1949), and Mr. Gillie (1954).
