A passionate indictment of the development policies being wrought by America in Nepal. Drawing heavily on the life stories of individual Nepalese, the author argues that both the economic winners and losers in this game are victimized by the structures and assumptions of Western development. He examines such issues as the growth of pot culture and prostitution, the growing poverty of the Nepalese poor, the subordination of Nepalese elites to Westerners, and the history of development policy in Nepal.
