The Power Template: Shakespeare's Political Plays is a study of Shakespeare's History and Roman Plays which identifies references to key political issues of the Elizabethan age that Shakespeare could not have addressed straight-on without falling foul of the Privy Council. The author also ventures to make thought provoking comparisons with present day governance which call into question the conduct of the modern political class. Ben Jonson wrote that Shakespeare 'was not of an age, but for all time!' These plays, and the light they cast on the nature of power, continue to have an exigent and immediate bearing on the business of governance in our time.
