Monarchy: The History of an Idea
Brenda Ralph Lewis (au)
Traces the origins & development of monarchy from ancient cultures such as Mesopotamia, Egypt, China & Japan to modern times. The roots of monarchy in its original ‘absolute’ form lie in religious ritual, in the godlike nature of monarchs & in the theory that they rule by Divine Right. Today, constitutional monarchies as they exist in Britain, Spain, Scandinavia, Thailand or Japan are more common, & they blend comfortably with modern concepts of democracy & personal freedom. Mixes anecdote & analysis to provide an informative overview of one of the world’s most intriguing & enduring institutions & its most ancient form of government. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in royalty or in the origins & development of monarchy. Illus.
