  • The book has tried to follow how the Brahmin-Bhujel village of Bigutar has been changed by the natural and socio-economic environment within which it is embedded. In essence, this establishes a baseline through a detailed description and analysis of the community of Bigutar during the period 1971-1972 and then demonstrates what happened to this population during the next thirty years.This study of Bigutar, a rural agricultural village in Eastern Nepal, calls into question current theoretical models for peasant communities. According to the economic- factors upon which present typo logical analyses of peasant communities are almost exclusively based, Bigutar should be a close corporate peasant community. It is not.
