ABOUT THE BOOK:
Created in 1768, Nepal is one of the few countries to have escaped the colonial occupation. However, since Nepal opened up to the modern world in 1951, it has faced a series of political upheavals, followed by volatile constitutional experiments, leading to increasing risks to its very basic structure.
Nepal: A Country in Transition analyses the crux of ongoing upheavals on multiple fronts, and helps in a comprehensive understanding of the problems facing the country. A group of eminent scholars discuss pragmatic strategies to deal with the many crises and ensure Nepal’s national unity, sovereignty, territorial integrity and ways to economic prosperity in the twenty-first century.
An important addition to the existing literature on the country, this book looks at Nepal through multiple lenses, suggesting the way forward.
