"Gil argues that Shakespeare supports neither monarchical nor civic republican values, as both depend on the sovereign power of the state to control the bodies of subjects. . . Gil's introduction is especially insightful in relating his theory to the present. Summing up: Recommended." CHOICE
"The strength of the book lies in the clarity of Gil's basic thesis and the consistency with which it is applied." Julia Reinhard Lupton, Renaissance Quarterly
"...ambitious, incisive, and sophisticated. It is excellent... Shakespeare's Anti-Politics will be of tremendous interest to a range of scholars interested in Shakespeare's relationship to politics, the body, and performance." James Kuzner, Shakespeare Quarterly
