British traditional drama has generated fierce scholarly debate, as the 280 works listed in this bibliography can testify. The three authors, all members of the Traditional Drama Research Group, guide us through the vexed questions of mumming's origins to more sociological investigations. The bibliography draws out the ties with other traditional drama, points to overseas connections, and helps the reader find the play texts themselves. This, the second of FLS Books bibliographies, will prove an indispensable research tool.
