Essays on Nepal – Sam Cowan (Bestseller) |
Sam Cowan’s unique essays are essential for the specialist and highly entertaining for the generalist. His analyses of the battles of the Maoist insurgency, or ‘People’s War, were pathbreaking when originally published and remain deeply insightful. What he has to say on frontiers, human rights abuses, corruption in high places, and the misjudgements and foibles of Nepal’s rulers, makes for compulsive reading.
