Bertolt Brecht continues to be regarded as one of the twentieth century's most controversial and influential writers. His life and work raise important questions about the nature and function of literature and theater, about perception and commitment, about feminist approaches to politics and literature, and about intellectual property rights. The Brecht Yearbook is a venue for discussion about aspects of theater and literature that were of particular interest to Brecht, especially the politics of literature and the politics of theater in a global context. The volume Brecht in / and Asia contains twenty-six essays based on presentations given at "Brecht in/and Asia,"the thirteenth Symposium of the International Brecht Society (IBS), which was held at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in 2010. Themes covered include Brecht in India; contemporary Chinese theater; the 'Chinese' Brecht; tradition, Brecht, and political theater; Brecht between imperialism and postcolonialism, orient and occident; Fritz Bennewitz's intercultural Brecht productions; and Brecht('s) adaptations.

MARKUS WESSENDORF is a Professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa in Honolulu.
