Global Economics: A History of the Theater Business, the Chamberlain's/King's Men, and Their Plays, 1599-1642

Front Cover
University of Delaware Press, 2005 - Business & Economics - 250 pages
This book is a study of the Chamberlain's/King's Men as a business. It investigates the economic workings of the company: the conditions under which they operated, their expenses and income, and the ways in which they adopted to fit changing circumstances. Each chapter focuses on a different moment in the company's history, and consists of economic readings, exploring texts by Shakespeare and other authors through an economic lens, as the property of the company and through the circumstances in which they were written.
