Adam wrote an introductory text on psychodrama, titled Acting-In, first published in 1973. (It has become one of the better-known texts because of its relative clarity, translated into several languages.) A decade later, he wrote an intellectual companion to Acting-In, titled Foundations of Psychodrama. This book delved more deeply into history, theory, and practice. Around that time (1988), he and his wife, Allee, also had published their book, The Art of Play: Helping Adults Reclaim Imagination and Spontaneity. These books have been revised several times and translated into numerous languages. Adam continues to write chapters and articles on psychodrama and other topics. At present he's co-editing an anthology about different kinds of improvisational and interactive drama.
