Diane Publishing Books
W. M. Spellman (au). Surveys a form of govít. whose legitimacy rests not on voluntary consensus but on age-old custom, heredity &/or religious sanction. Establishes connections between monarchy as idea & practice in a variety of historical & cultural contexts across a millennium when the system was without serious rival. Examines the intellectual assumptions behind different models of monarchy, tracing the ways in which each of these assumptions shifted in response to historical factors incl. expanding literacy, the develop. of modern science & the growth of rationalism, & the decline of institutional religion. The systemís remarkable longevity invites us to weigh the significance of hierarchy, subordín. & dependence as constants of the human experience.
