Blurb on dust jacket:

The Kingdom of Maldives has had a long recorded history of statehood. This statehood embodied not only total sovereignty in its governance but also a well-defined set of traditions that formulated its polity.

A political system perhaps can best be understood not so much from a discussion of its theoretical composition but more from its de facto operations. Mohamed Nasheed in this book cuts into the very thick of the actions and events of the 1800's Maldivian political history which has allowed him to exemplify the boundaries and the conduct that polity and as further given his room to show the interactions that led up to the major events in the Dhivehi polity.
