This comprehensive analysis provides a thorough and balanced treatment of the emergence of a democratic polity in Nepal. Drawing on original survey data, Ramjee P. Parajulee analyzes the role of external forces in the transition process and the barriers to consolidating democracy. The author argues that a favorable external environment and the changing policies of outside actors influenced the perceptions and behavior of internal political forces, thus contributing to democratization efforts. Yet despite positive signs, the consolidation effort faces political, economic, and sociocultural roadblocks that will continue to hamper NepalOs development.
