The Gorkha conquests: the process and consequences of the unification of Nepal, with particular reference to eastern Nepal

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1991 - 282 pages
This book traces the creation of the modern Nepalese State through the aggrandizement of the principality of Gorkha. It challenges the dominant view of the entire process as one of national unification, and maintains that the creation of the State in the absence of popular socio-cultural integration makes the notion of national unification invalid.
