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
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
