'His strongest play for many years, a gripping and at times powerfully affecting drama [which] balances private lives with public morality...It is also an amazingly full-blooded piece, bursting with pain and passion' Daily Telegraph
From the Back Cover
It's the late 1930s in New York. Phillip Gellburg is an executive and the only Jew among the WASPs at a very Establishment Wall Street bank. His wife, Sylvia, is obsessed with news of Nazi Germany. After seeing a photo of old Jewish men forced to scrub the sidewalk with toothbrushes, she becomes mysteriously paralyzed in the legs. The only one who perceives Sylvia's fears and longings is Dr. Hyman - a man as passionate and empathetic as Phillip is repressed. Miller's resonant and intriguing new play is about sexual awakening, the consequences of denial, and the toll that social injustice takes on an individual. This is an extraordinarily powerful drama from America's foremost playwright. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

I can only assume that this description is in fact of an entirely different book, as this is by no means an 'expertly edited edition'. As this edition is of German origin I would guess that the analysis of vocabulary is instead for those with a less wide ranging grasp of English who may need otherwise to refer to a dictionary in order to understand certain phrases. There is nothing inherently wrong with this edition of Broken Glass, but don't buy it expecting anything other than the play with a few explanations of terms as footnotes. This is in no way the student's guide it is advertised as.
