Book Excerpt : Shaw's thinking about history was fundamental to his work as a dramatist; historical issues deeply engaged his plays, whether set in the past or the present. This is the first book to explore this preoccupation with historical themes, demonstrating how Shaw's interest in the historical process achieved dramatic expression, and throwing new light on the playwright's accomplishment in a variety of plays.
