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.'

Testimonials

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
