Subject: 	Ron Rosenbaum's The Shakespeare Wars

At my local bookstore I noticed a stack of mint copies of Ron 
Rosenbaum's _The Shakespeare Wars:  Clashing Scholars, Public Fiascoes, 
Palace Coups_ (Random House, pub. Tuesday; 624 pp.; $35). Unfortunately 
I had only a moment to glance at it before rushing back to the parking 
meter ($40 tickets around SF), so got only the impression that it seems 
determinedly controversial.  The publisher blurb is at 
http://www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780375503399
and early reviews can be found at 
http://www.thephoenix.com/article_ektid23054.aspx and 
http://www.nysun.com/article/39890

Cheers,
Al Magary
