Title : Modern Nepal: A Political History 1769-1955 (2 Vols. bound in one)
Author : Rishikesh Shaha
Edition : Paperback
ISBN : 8173044031
Pages : 692p.
Year of Pub : 2001
Price : Rs 450.00
This is a running account of political trends and developments in Nepal from the rise of Prithvinarayan Shaha until 1955 when King Tribhuvan died. Starting with introductory background about Nepal, the story takes us through the ascendence of Prithvinarayan Shaha, the erstwhile ruler of Gorkha as the king of Nepal, the emergence of Rana Prime Ministers as virtual rulers, their inter family feuds and ends with the 1950-51 revolution and its aftermath. Prof. Rishikesh Shaha`s admirably written two volume study of Modern Nepal . . . could not have come out at a more opportune time. In fine, this epoch-making publication which surveys the history of modern Nepal from 1769 to 1955 is a work of pioneering scholarship, and what is even rarer, a work of profound wisdom.
