`If good teaching is making the strange and unfamiliar less so, then Shakespeare's Political Drama is indeed exemplary teaching. Through close analysis of the histories and the Roman plays, Leggatt shows what is important politically for Shakespeare and how this differs from our own view…Highly recommended.' - Choice

`… persuasive and well-written …' - Stage and Television Today

`Leggat is good company: he can be witty and has a sharp feeling for theatre.' - English Literature

`… an extremely literate, thorough and fair-minded history.' - William C. Carroll, Canadian Journal of the Humanities.
