Shakespeare Studies is an international volume published every year in hard cover that contains essays and studies by scholars and cultural historians from both hemispheres. Although the journal maintains a focus on the theatrical milieu of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, it is also concerned with Britain's intellectual and cultural connections to the continent, its socio-political history, and its place in the emerging globalism of the period. The journal also includes substantial reviews of significant publications dealing with these issues, as well as theoretical studies relevant to scholars of early modern culture.

An Editorial Board of American and British 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 research scholars, certainly, but also for teachers, actors, and directors.

Volume XXXVII features another in the journal's ongoing series of Forums, in which scholars exchange views on an issue of importance to early modern studies. Organised and introduced by John H. Astington, this Forum is entitled 'The Universities and the Theater' and includes commentary by theatre historians Sarah Knight, Andrew Gurr, Christopher Marlow, and Alan H. Nelson.

As a complement to the Forum, Volume XXXVII also features an article by S. P. Cerasano analysing "The Fortune Contract in Reverse." A second article by David B. Goldstein, 'The Cook and the Cannibal: Titus Andronicus and the New World' considers cannibalism in Shakespeare's tragedy, and a third by Martin Orkin provides a new way of theorising 'Speaking Process.' In a review article, Clare McManus reconsiders 'Early Modern Women's Performance', taking note of several recent publications on the subject.

The book review section of this volume features reviews of 17 diverse books of current importance to early modern studies. Some focus on Shakespeare and his canon, addressing such topics as the reshaping of Shakespeare across time and media; others focus on major figures of the English Renaissance, including John Foxe; still others analyse broader topics of importance to English cultural history such as angels in the early modern world, and literature and anatomy.

Also included in this issue is a review by John Drakakis of Lena Cowen Orlin's Center or Margin: Revisions of the English Renaissance in Honor of Leeds Barroll, a collection that pays tribute to the founder of Shakespeare Studies.
