A broad-based democracy movement succeeded in removing the 28-year-old Panchayat system after a campaign that lasted only six weeks. Five months later a new constitution was promulgated and, just over a year after the ending of the agitation, the Nepali Congress party secured a majority in the general election. This study contains eight essays by Western academics that reflect on the changes that occurred in the kingdom as the decade began and on the circumstances that produced these changes. As the events of 1990 pass into history, this book looks back in an attempt to understand them, and to draw lessons for the future of Nepal.
