Part travel book, part commentary on kingship, "Obscure Kingdoms" also explores political power, the human self, God, the Cosmos and the meaning of life. In order to discover the true meaning of kingship, Edward Fox travelled to five obscure kingdoms - Tonga, Oman, Nigeria, Swaziland and Java - to meet the rulers, themselves. An inspired traveller, with an astute eye for the peculiar, the supernatural and the ceremonial, Edward Fox met with varying degrees of success, learning that one of the degrees of kingship is distance and inaccessibility.
