Read full description of the books:
This is one of the rare books about Nepal, written in mid 20th century. Yes, it is not so long ago, but Nepal was a forbidden country until the 1940s and very few foreigners were allowed into the country back then. Even those were allowed were closely monitored just like in present-day North Korea. And when reading the book, it actually feels like very long time ago and conditions of people in remote villages were similar to what is it now in North Korea. Nepal has changed significantly since then and for good. Sure, some will bemoan the lost tranquility but lives of people have significantly improved which is what matter most in my opinion.
The book touches all the aspect of Nepal: socio-economics, politics, geography, religion etc. but the most surprising and interesting thing is that the author even describes sex life of Nepalese in the hills!
I really enjoyed reading this book, but as a Nepalese expatriate, I'm biased. However, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in socio-economy and history of Nepal.
