Abstract

This book presents a thorough case study of Nepal’s post-1990 constitutional experience. Mara Malagodi looks to trace the evolution of Nepal from a constitutional monarchy to a republic by analysing the drafting of the 1990 Constitution, the impact of the Maoist insurgency (1996-2006) on demands for constitutional change, the relationship between conflict and demands for recognition, and the role of Nepal’s Supreme Court in the articulation of identity politics. Amanda Snellinger finds that the book will be a striking read for scholars interested in legal exclusion, Nepal’s political history, and constitutions and national identities.
