9780198089384: Revolution in Nepal: An Anthropological and Historical Approach to the People's War

Revolution in Nepal is a comprehensive study of the People's War in Nepal that was waged by the Maoist party. The chapters are based on extensive fieldwork conducted at the grass-roots level, covering the country's rural areas from Khotang to Jumla, before, during, and after the revolutionary movement. They focus on village life and its micro history under Maoist control.

The volume also examines the War's antecedents, such as the anti-Rana and anti-Panchayat movements, and the various ways in which the Maoist revolution developed in the country's rural areas. Thus, with an anthropological and historical approach, it presents an account of the impact of the People's War in the country. By doing so, it reflects the revolution brought about in the conception of Nepalese history, which is now commonly presented as a series of uprisings.

Book Description Oxford University Press, 2013. Softcover. Book Condition: New. The People`s War waged by the Maoist Party in Nepal overtly aimed at radically changing the nature of power and society. Nepalese society was thus shaken to its very roots, experiencing its own fragility and the arbitrariness of its organization notably based on patriarchy, caste hierarchy, and monarchy. Revolution in Nepal brings together fieldwork studies in Nepalese rural areas before, during, and after the revolutionary movement. Accounting for this powerful socio-political project and its far-reaching effects, this volume seeks to explore the conditions and modalities for an armed revolutionary movement to develop, extend, and encompass all aspects of life. Making use of micro history, oral history, and `long-term anthropology`, it provides some answers to this puzzling question by examining, on the one hand, the antecedents of the People`s War and, on the other hand, how it was waged in the country`s rural areas under Maoist control, and the variety of paths it followed in different local and regional contexts. A significant addition to the growing body of scholarly literature on Nepal`s conflict, this volume will be of interest to students and scholars of social anthropology, political science, and history, especially those researching contemporary Nepal. Printed Pages: 448. Bookseller Inventory # 72640
