Cover:Hard Back With Dust Jacket
Size:250 x 165 mm
This book provides a unique insight into how ordinary Nepalese experienced and lived through the Maoist insurgency. Their hopes and their fears and the way in which they responded to and coped with the anxieties, tensions and pressures generated by the conflict, are the central concern of this collection. Providing a historical background to the launching of the Maoist insurgency in February 1996, the first part of the book also gives perspectives on developments from 1996 up to the turning point of late 2001, when the conflict intensified. The second part covers the period from 2001 to 2005, by which time the conflict become a civil war and there were effectively two regimes in Nepal- the Maoist and the monarchy. This book is a collection of experiences, observations and analyses of journalists, social anthropologists, and NGO employees, both Nepalese and expatriate, who spent time travelling through or living in the areas affected by insurgency and the conflict between the Maoists and the state security forces to which it gave rise
