Shakespeare Studies is an international volume published every year in hard cover featuring essays and studies by critics and cultural historians from both hemispheres. The journal also contains substantial reviews of important books and essays dealing with the cultural history of early modern England and the place of Shakespeare's productions (together with those of his contemporaries) within it. In recent years, Shakespeare Studies has expanded to include articles and reviews on significant intellectual and historical events on the continent; on global issues pertaining to England, in particular its relationship to the Near and the Far East; and on theoretical works relevant to the critical analysis of Shakespeare and his time.

An Editorial Board of cultural historians and scholars maintains the quality of each annual volume, so that Shakespeare Studies may serve as a useful guide for all students of Shakespeare and the early modern period-for teachers, actors, and directors, as well as for research scholars.

Volume XXXV features an important contribution to the journal's series of Forums, a format by which a selected group of scholars comment on a salient intellectual issue. Organised and edited by Jean E. Howard, and entitled 'English Cosmopolitanism and the Early Modern Moment', this Forum features commentary from a representative group of cultural historians, including Alison Games, Jonathan Gil Harris, Barbara Sebek, Alan B. Farmer, Crystal Bartolovich, and Pamela Allen Brown.

Volume XXXV also includes a special review article by Ewan Fernie on the work of Jonathan Dollimore, distinguished scholar and member of the journal's Editorial Board, as well as two additional review articles that examine the contemporary milieu for the Shakespeare industry: 'THWS, CWWS, WSAF, and WSCI in the Shakespeare Book Biz' by Bruce R. Smith; and 'Shakespearean Localities and the Localities of Shakespeare Studies' by Alexander C. Y. Huang. There are also two full-length articles on Shakespeare's tragedies: 'Lives and Letters in Antony and Cleopatra by Alan Stewart; and ' "Try what repentance can": Hamlet, Confession, and the Extraction of Interiority' by Paul D. Stegner.

In keeping with the practice in Shakespeare Studies of reviewing a representative spectrum of important new scholarship, the book review section includes 17 wide-ranging reviews. Topics include the making of manuscripts in the English Renaissance; print, gender, and literacy in early modern England; readings in the English book trade; numerical thought and scientific reading in early modern Europe; theatrical traditions in Shakespeare's playhouse; the Children of the Queen's Revels; Shakespeare and women; Shakespeare and political ideology; the function of rogues in early modern culture and literature; and the relationship of the working poor to the culture of English mobility.
