'A History of Nepal will be of interest to any student of South Asian studies, since it fills a serious lacuna in scholarship on the region. … Whelpton's text is the first accessible overview of Nepal's political history published by a university press in English. … Whelpton deserves much praise for rising to the challenge of writing a comprehensive yet orderly history of a nation … Whelpton succeeds on all accounts. As a result, A History of Nepal is a compelling narrative introduction to this frequently misunderstood country.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
'… very well written and organised, … an excellent one-volume up-to-date history of Nepal in addition to being an extremely good reference book.' The Britain-Nepal Society Journal
'… Whelpton's History of Nepal is a valuable introduction to that country. It will be useful to all non-Nepalese specialists interested in South Asia: it gives a good and accurate account of the historical events and provides general information on a wide range of quite disparate topics.' Contributions to Nepalese Studies
A comprehensive and accessible single-volume history of Nepal, first published in 2005. Early chapters are devoted to the origins of the kingdom, while the focus of the book is on the last fifty years when economic and political turmoil climaxed in the massacre of the royal family and the resulting civil war.See all Product Description
