(UCLA Latin American Studies, Volume 41) Series From the Preface: "This publication is the result of a research project begun in the summer of 1972 [and] entitled 'The Dramatic Arts as Instruments of Education for Social Change in Contemporary Latin America.' Its objectives were, first, to document and analyze the role of the theater and other dramatic and paradramatic arts, such as cinema, television, dance, and song, as pedagogical tools for literacy and health campaigns, occupational and citizenship training, and also as motivational agents for social change; second, the project attempted to assess the techniques and the effectiveness of current dramatic arts activities, both within and without the official educational process." Focusing primarily on the most recent 25 years, the book contains "essays, reports, interviews, and collages covering a majority of the Latin American countries and the related Chicano area. Some are theoretical and methodological essays, some are panoramic descriptions, a few are historical accounts, and others are case studies or reports. Most of them support a new social order, a few, the status quo. All of them stress the theater in its scenic or theatrical practice, not in its literary denotation." Includes a select bibliography on popular theater, television and song of contemporary Latin America. . (Inventory #: 14183)
