Abstract
This book is a description, a celebration and an analysis of outdoor theatre, which demonstrates just what a sophisticated art form it is. It provides a practical guide to those who are new to the subject and enables practising performers to additional new insight on their own work. It also provides arts administrators and festival organisers with the information they need to programme outdoor performances successfully. Bim Mason describes some of the less well known methods as well as examining the performance practices of some of the most established British and European companies. He shows how the contemporary scene has been arrived at, and explores the ways in which outdoor performance continues to challenge and dissolve our definitions of "theatre".

Abstract
Ethnomusicology: A Research and Information Guide is an annotated bibliography of books, recordings, videos, and websites in the field of ethnomusicology. The book is divided into two parts; Part One is organised by resource type in catagories of greatest concern to students and scholars. This includes handbooks and guides; encyclopedias and dictionaries; indexes and bibliographies; journals; media sources; and archives. It also offers annotated entries on the basic literature of ethnomusicological history and research. Part Two provides a list of current publications in the field that are widely used by ethnomusicologists. Multiply indexed, this book serves as an excellent tool for librarians, researchers, and scholars in sorting through the massive amount of new material that has appeared in the field over the past decades.
