Nepal in the Nineties
Nepal in the Nineties
Description
About the Book:

This collection of eight essays presents a diversity of detail about the politics as well as the social, cultural, and literary life of Nepal in the decade of the 1990s. The political situation in this Himalayan kingdom altered dramatically in 1990: A broad-based democracy movement succeeded in removing the twenty-eight-year-old Panchayat system after a campaign that lasted only six weeks. Seven months later, a new constitution was promulgated. A year after the end of the agitation, the Nepali Congress Party secured a majority in the general election, and made world news.

Based on several years of research, these essays reflect on the changes that occurred in the kingdom as the decade began, and on the circumstances that produced these changes. Their wide-ranging focus on the social processes at work in the 1990s will appeal to all those interested in the recent past, the present and the future of Nepal.

About the Author:

Michael Hutt is Reader in Nepali and Himalayan Studies in the School of Oriental and African Studies, London.

Experts from Reviews:

'…a competent analysis of the General Election of 1991…[and] an excellent exposition of the intellectual ferment of the time.'

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
