Lemuel A. Johnson's Shakespeare in Africa (and Other Venues): Import and
the Appropriation of Culture  (Lawrenceville, NJ: Africa World Press,
1998) is a gem.

Johnson, who is professor of English at the University of Michigan in
Ann Arbor and author of the celebrated Sierra Leone Trilogy---Highlife
for Caliban; Hand on the Navel;  and Carnival of the Old Coast  (AWP
1995), in this new, poignant work, examines constelllations of
encounters and evidence that are germain in various contexts, ranging
from Oxford to the popular stage in Bombay and from North America's
various negotiations of its putative European ancestries to
Shakespeare's reception in Africa as compared with that in Europe and
the Americas.
