2 A History of Nepal

John Whelpton

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 0521671418 / 9780521671415, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Nepal emerged as a unified state over two hundred years ago, centred on the Kathmandu Valley with its two thousand years of urban civilisation. While John Whelpton’s history focuses on the period since the overthrow of the Rana family autocracy in 1950?1, the early chapters are devoted to the origins of the kingdom and the evolving relations of its diverse peoples. By drawing on recent research on Nepal’s environment, society and political institutions, the author portrays a country of extraordinary contrasts, whose history has been constantly buffeted by its neighbours, China and India. Economic and political turmoil over the last fifty years came to a climax in the massacre of the royal family in 2001, when the country erupted into civil war. The book represents the first English-language history of Nepal in one volume. Its comprehensive and accessible approach will appeal to students, professionals and those visiting the region. Contents Introduction 1. Environment, state and society in the central Himalayas to 1743 2. Unification and Sanskritisation, 1743?885 3. Nepal under the Shamsher Ranas, 1885?951 4.

4 Contentious Politics and Democratization in Nepal

Mahendra Lawoti (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0761936017 / 9780761936015, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
After the restoration of democracy in 1990, Nepal witnessed collective political struggles—identity and gender movements, public protests and strikes, and the Maoist rebellion.This volume examines the causes, consequences and effectiveness of such contentious politics, and their relationship to democratization. Contradicting the popular thesis that contentious politics generally promotes democratization, this topical book shows that some forms of contentious politics can hinder it, even as other forms strengthen democracy. It also suggests that the nature of activities—whether they are coercive or voluntary—lead to different effects on democratization. A timely addition to the literature on contentious politics, democratization, and Nepal, it will be of interest to scholars studying democratic politics, as well as practitioners engaged in nurturing fledgling democracies.

19 Nepal: Nostalgia and Modernity

Deepak Shimkhada (ed.)

Marg Publications, Mumbai, India, 2011, 9789380581088, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 25 x 30.5 Cm 
Nepal: Nostalgia and Modernity examines a variety of artistic and cultural expressions of the Kathmandu Valley by bringing together a group of scholars from diverse fields. The confluence of such scholars with different approaches is crucial in bridging the gaps created by looking at Nepal's art narrowly. By highlighting various expressions of art manifested through painting, sculpture, architecture, dance, and even drama, issues of nostalgia and modernity are juxtaposed to examine the art of Nepal from new viewpoints. The style of art we call Nepali is produced by the Newars, the original inhabitants of the Kathmandu Valley, who shaped it from ancient to modern times. The present volume celebrates various artistic expressions of the Newars as well as other ethnic groups that have contributed to the rich cultural heritage of the country. Various traditions, including the Kumari cult and street theater are llustrated along with contemporary art and architecture. Contents: Part I: Architecture and Visual Arts; Architecture: The Quest for Nepaleseness- Niels Gutschow; In Pursuit of Modernity: The Revival of Classicism in Nepali Architecture- Katharina Weiler; Living Traditions: Aquatic Architecture and Imagery in the Kathmandu Valley- Julia A.B. Hegewald; Traditional Religious Painting in Modern Nepal: Seeing the Gods with New Eyes- Ian Alsop; Contemporary Nepali Art: Narratives of Modernity and Visuality- Dina Bangdel; Re-imagining the Universe: Neo-Tantra in Nepal- Katherine Anne Harper; The Potters of Thimi: Village Ceramic Traditions in Flux- Ani Kasten. Part II: Religious Festivals and Performances; Street Theatre: Where the Agora of Gods and Humans Meet- Sangita Rayamajhi; Tantric Buddhist Dance of Nepal: From the Temple to the Stage and Back- Miranda Shaw; Celebrating Siva at Pashupati- Tim Ward; Kumari: Caught Between Past and Present Printed Pages: 128 with numerous illustrations. 037763
