Author Name: Amish Raj Mulmi
Price: USD 15

‘By a deft combination of long-range historical perspective and scrupulous reportage, Mulmi turns the searchlight on Nepal’s ties with Tibet and China. His tightly crafted narrative and argument revises much of the received wisdom on the recent trajectory of Nepal's foreign relations. This book should be required reading for everyone in New Delhi dealing with Nepal and for anyone interested in understanding China's growing footprint in the subcontinent.’

Book Name: Empowering Dalits Through Knowledge
Author Name: Eds: Tulsi Ram Pandey , Tika Ram gautam , Madhusudan Subedi
Price: USD 15

It is most welcome to have this stimulating collection of essays on the Dalits, the most underprivileged and discriminated caste/class in Nepali society. Written by academics and social activists, these well-researched essays challenge our thoughts and actions. The essays deal with a phenomenon that is at once harsh and cruel and yet enigmatically elusive and persistent. This book deserves a wide readership from among those interested in inequality and social change in Nepal today.

Book Name: Castleford to Kathmandu : Poems in progress...
Author Name: Greta Rana
Price: USD 6

Celebrated Anglo-Nepali writer Greta Rana’s short collection of poems is a selection that has never been published previously. The author began to put them together in late 2007 out of the scraps of notes she found in Castleford and Kathmandu after her father died. A fair number of the poems are about loss and about conflict. The reason for the title is straightforward. In the past of the author’s home town, she had seen many commonalities with the situation in Nepal and some of its people. Nepal never had the distinction of being a…
