Bob White, who wrote its introduction, deftly explains the main aim of 
the contributors' endevour:  "In the cold, hard language of 
international capitalism, Shakespeare is a global commodity, a currency 
that has credit even more universal than the American dollar and Euro. 
As a consequence, his plays and words, taken in and out of context, have 
been shamelessly exploited, most notably in a cultural imperialism that 
seeks to homogenize and imprint certain values on all countries in the 
world. [. . .  ]. This book examines a range of ways in which the 
phenomenon operates, from the global, the national, the ethnic, the 
individual, to his ubiquitousness in a new media.   [. . ]"
