590 BOOK REVIEWS position ironically, and perhaps dangerously, perpetuates the binary between Islam and the West which Carlson initially sets out to bridge. He further supports that duality by predicting that the “modernization” (or rather the Westernization) of theatre in the Islamic world will remain an area of contention for the foreseeable future. Sadly, he concludes that theatre and Islam seem to be diverging in their paths despite having entwined histories. One hopes that this book and any scholarly contributions that follow will further illuminate the histories and possibilities for theatre in the Islamic world.
