Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The king of Mankon, in the western highlands of Cameroon, is an agricultural engineer by training, a businessman, and a prominent politician on the national stage. He partakes in the return of the kings in the forefront of an African public space. This book analyses the principles of the sacred kingship which lie at the core of the king s different roles. While showing that the king s body acts as a container of bodily substances transformed into unifying ancestral life-essence by appropriate means, and bestowed upon its subjects, it develops an innovative approach to bodily and material cultures as an essential component of the technologies of power. In so doing, it departs significantly from previous approaches to sacred kingship. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9789004152175
