A fascinating overview of African art that explores the diverse ways in which African rulers have employed art and architecture in kingdoms from West and Central Africa to define individual and state identity. Suzanne Blier draws on a rich array of illustrations to provide a unique insight into the cultural context of these complex arts while also raising more general questions about royalty and power.
