The book concentrates on the social and cultural factors which lie behind the current Nepal crisis locating the root cause in the Brahmin-Chhetri minority which dominates Kathmandu and other towns. Fatalism and the caste system still flourish behind the facade of modern bureaucracy, at all levels of government, in education, foreign aid, politics and administration. The author attempts to distill all his experience into a portrait of his society.
