Product Description

About two hundred years ago, Nepal arose as a single entity, based on the Kathmandu Valley with its two thousand years of urban civilization. While the history of John Whelpton centers on the time after the 1950-51 abolition of the Rana family autocracy, the early chapters dedicate themselves to the roots of the kingdom and the changing relations of its various peoples. Through building on studies into the climate, culture and political structures of Nepal, the author presents a world with remarkable contrasts that its neighbors, the two Asian powers, China and India, have continuously buffeted. Over the last fifty years, economic and political instability reached a climax in the 2001 royal family assassination, when the world exploded into a civil war. The book, first published in 2005, is detailed and will cater to students , professionals and those visiting the area for its open approach.
