ABOUT THIS 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.
