Nepali Politics: Retrospect and Prospect

By Rishikesh Shaha
Oxford University Press, 1975
208 pp. $7.50

The author was his country's former Ambassador to the U.S. and to the U.N. as well as its ex-Foreign and Finance Minister. Now exiled for his opposition to royal autocracy, he has written a surpassingly lucid and straightforward account of Nepali politics, both domestic and foreign; his frank commitment to increased democracy and popular participation is a welcome relief from the value-free stance of the professional political scientist.
