Abstract

This is an important collection of essays by the erstwhile Colonel Commandant of the British Brigade of Gurkhas. The essays deal with, inter alia, the Maoist conflict in Nepal; the British recruitment of Gurkha soldiers; changes in the lives of people living on Nepal's remote northern borders; the politics of Nepal's borderlands; visits to the UK by Nepali rulers; the Sino-India war of 1962; the aftermath of the April 2015 earthquake; and corruption in Nepal.

Sam Cowan’s knowledge of Nepal is as deep as it is broad, deriving from his life-long professional engagement with the British Gurkhas and from his personal journeys through some of the country’s remotest communities. His writing bears a scholar’s acuity and precision. In his essays he investigates many points of lingering confusion, deliberate obfuscation or wilful ignorance about Nepal’s history and current events, revealing, instead, Nepal’s complicated truths. Whether close-up or panoramic in scope, Cowan’s vision is always crystal clear. Both scholars and lay readers will learn much from this essay collection, which is bound to be an instant classic.

The event is free but registration is required. Please see the link registration details: https://www.soas.ac.uk/south-asia-institute/events/22nov2018-essays-on-nepal.html
