  • This book is about marginalization of the Gurkhas at home and abroad. It presents an entirely new perspective on the Gurkhas that will provoke those attuned to the patronizing genre. This is based on the author's intimate knowledge of Gurkha rural life as an anthropologist. Such a grass root perspective is complemented by interviews with former and serving British officers and archival research on the class structure of Gurkha officers. This book will appeal to a wide readership, academic and non-academic, such as students of anthropology, literature, cultural studies, military and colonial history, South Asian studies and readers generally interested in militaria.
