Editorial Reviews


"Gregg Coodley has a fascinating way of taking his readers on a journey into mostly forgotten areas in history. Once again, everything here is carefully researched and then revealed in such a manner that it truly become one of those books tha's hard to put down."

Zed Merrill, author, Invisible are the Brave

"The Good Monarchs explores the life and times of 18 rulers whose reigns extend from the mists of prehistory to the 21st century, whose sense of purpose and duty led them to govern for the broader good of all their subjects...The flawed, but benevolent rulers proflied in this insightful volume rose above their era's tribal and ethnic allegiances to embrace an expansive sense of tolerance, compassion and justice for all their people-ideals that are as rare now as in the distant past."

W.R. McRae, author, Lonely Planet Pacific Northwest: Oregon

"Political Scientists have largely lost interest in monarchs, and those that survive generally serve as tourist attractions. But for most of human history, societies were mostly governed by monarchs, and Gregg Coodley relates stores that illustrate these societies and the decisions that shaped them. From legendary figures such as Queen Elizabeth I and Suleiman the Magnificent to less known rulers from medieval Mali and Cambodia, Coodley shows what makes power effective- and with reach from Spain to Thailand, finds some vital royal roles for our time."

David Sarasoh, Editor/Columnist (retired), The Oregonian
