From the cover: “Wole Soyinka's most recent full-length play, Madmen and Specialists is set in the context of war and the aftermath of war. Dr Bero is a medical specialist who goes to the front as a doctor and there changes profession to become an intelligence specialist. The 'mad- men' of the play's title are Dr Bero's father and his followers in the mocking cult of 'As'. This is an ironic expression of horror not only at his own son's change of roles but at the universal triumph of expediency and power lust, which makes dehumanisation possible, even in wars.”
