Military and Democracy in Nepal by Indra (Nepal Centre for Contemporary Studies, Kathmandu, Nepal.) Adhikari

This book explores the development of the military as an organization and looks at the patterns of civil-military relations that have emerged in modern Nepal, especially after the rise of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who founded the unified state of Nepal. It combines astute analyses with up-to-date data to present a comprehensive account of the relations between monarchy, military and civil government and their impact on the democratization process in the country. The author underlines the pressing need for establishing civilian supremacy over the military, through developing and strengthening civilian supervisory mechanisms. The book will be an important resource to researchers, scholars, students of politics, military studies, peace and conflict studies, and history, particularly those concerned with Nepal. It will also interest policy-makers, security experts and military personnel.


Based on research and in-depth study of origin, development and nature of [the] Nepalese army and its role ... in democratic evolution as well as in its retardation, this work would definitely provide a new perspective on the triangular relationship between monarchy, army and democracy. - Lok Raj Baral, Professor and Executive Chairman, Nepal Centre for Contemporary Studies (NCCS); and former Ambassador of Nepal to India A perceptive, incisive and thorough analysis of the relationship between army, monarchy and elected government, constituting the triumvirate of Nepalese politics. A must-read for a deeper understanding of the evolution of this politics over the last quarter century. - Muchkund Dubey, President, Council for Social Development; and former Foreign Secretary, Government of India
