THE DANCING DEMOCRACY: THE POWER OF THE THIRD EYE
THE DANCING DEMOCRACY: THE POWER OF THE THIRD EYE
Description
About the Book:

When the Seven Party Alliance called for a four-day strike starting from 6 April 2006, the anniversary of Nepal's 1990 Jana Andolan, no one could have foreseen what would ensue. The protests brought hundreds of thousands on the streets, and finally resulted in a victory for the proletariat and democracy. As history is being made Nepal, Prakash A. Raj takes a look at the main actors on the country's political stage -the monarch, the analyses what happened in Nepal and why. He probes such questions as whether Nepal will become a republic or a ceremonial monarchy, who will control the Royal Nepalese Army and whether the Maoists will join mainstream politics or will try and capture power. Interspersed with striking photographs of the demonstrations held recently in Nepal, this book is an insightful look into the turbulence in Nepal, and how the power of the people prevailed. A must-read for anyone interested in South Asian politics.

A well-known writer, Prakash A. Raj is the author of Kay Gardeko? The Royal Massacre in Nepal. He comes from the family of Nepal's Royal Preceptors and his association with the ruling family dates back to the period of King Mahendra. Having studied and worked both in his country and abroad, he currently lives in Nepal.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
