From monarchy to oligarchy to a tryst with multiparty politics, Nepal’s political history has been characterized by instability. The multi-ethnic, multilingual and multi-religious country has had its fair share of turmoil. After witnessing the Maoist uprising in the late 1990s, followed by the royal massacre in 2001—two of the many signs of unrest—the 240-year-old monarchy was only abolished in Nepal with the 2008 constituent assembly elections.

On one side were individuals with an insatiable thirst for power, while on the other were those demanding equitable representation of the people.

Nepal: From Monarchy to Republic delves into the journey of the Himalayan landlocked country, how it evolved from being under the reigns of the Shah Dynasty to its relatively new status as a democratic republic. Nepal still strives to maintain its internal stability while balancing its relations with its two neighbours, China and India. This book offers a deep insight into Nepal’s tumultuous past and its enduring challenges in the present day.
