'This is an excellent book, one of the best attempts I have seen to look at Shakespeare's plays in light of political philosophy. Indeed it suggests that Shakespeare had his own contribution to make to political philosophy. The book is at once thoughtful, insightful, provocative and eye-opening, and it should be of interest to anyone concerned with Shakespeare.'(Paul Cantor Department of English, University of Virginia)
'Craig has articulated a powerful theory that may serve as a guide for a great deal of subsequent interpretation of Shakespeare's plays, and in doing so, he has provided a touchstone by which many contemporary studies of the political importance and understanding of Shakespeare may be (and should be) judged.'(Joseph Lane The Review of Politics)
