'No one writes about Nepal more incisively and presciently than Prashant Jha. This is a meticulously researched and deeply passionate book. Generations of readers will turn to it to understand Nepal's fraught transition to democracy.' --Manjushree Thapa
'Prashant Jha is one of India's finest journalists. This is a meticulous, clear-eyed and riveting story of the revolutionary changes in Nepal, told with narrative flair, historical insight and a depth of knowledge rare in the field. It may be the one indispensable book on the subject. But the story of revolution and reaction, high idealism and low politics, universal aspiration and community division, will be of much wider interest. A major achievement.' --Pratap Bhanu Mehta, President of the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi
'Nepal's democratic revolution is one of the most remarkable political and social developments of the twenty-first century and there cannot be a better chronicle of this story than Prashant Jha's Battles of the New Republic.' --Siddharth Varadarajan, former editor of The Hindu
