Since 1990 media in Nepal has recorded spectacular growth, both in terms of quantity and quality. Several large newspapers and magazines published by different institutions now characterize the print media landscape while there has been a phenomenal growth in the number of independent FM radio stations. Several factors are responsible for this media growth. This book examines those factors and describes the changes witnessed in the media scene in the last fifteen years. It also analyzes many micro-facets of media in Nepal under the assumption that such attention is crucial to making media a real force for democracy in Nepali society. Apart from an introduction, this book contains 48 short essays under several thematic headings. This book should be read by all those concerned about media, and more broadly, democracy in contemporary Nepal. Introduction 1 I.
