Recently anthropology has turned to accounts of persons-in-history/history-in-persons, focusing on how individuals and groups as agents both fashion and are fashioned by social, political, and cultural discourses and practices. In this approach, power, agency, and history are made explicit as individuals and groups work to constitute themselves in relation to others and within and against sociopolitical and historical contexts. Contributors to this volume extend this emphasis, drawing upon their ethnographic research in Nepal to examine closely how selves, identities, and experience are produced in dialogical relationships through time in a multi-ethic nation-state and within a discourse of nationalism. The diversity of peoples, recent political transformations, and nation-building efforts make Nepal an especially rich locale to examine people's struggles to define and position themselves. But the authors move beyond geographical boundaries to more theoretical terrain to problematicize the ways in which people recreate or contest certain identities and positions. Various authors explore how people_positioned by gender, ethnicity, and locale_use cultural genres to produce aspects of identities and experiences; they examine how subjectivities, agencies and cultural worlds co-develop and are shaped through engagement with cultural forms; and they portray the appropriation of multiple voices for self and group formation. As such, this collection offers a richly textured and complex accounting of the mutual constitution of selves and society.

The Present Book Deals With Two Important Aspects Of The History Of Nepal: One The Expansion Of Gorkha Which Unwittingly Ultimately Led To The Formation Of Modern Nepal; And The Other The Tracing Of The Long History Of The Conspiratory Politics Of The Court Of Nepal. Both The Events Were Of Much Importance In The History As They Were Most Important Epoch-Making Events. During The 18Th Century, Nepal Was Just A Geographical Expression Not A Political Entity. Such A Small Country Also Was Divided Into Fifty Four Petty Principalities Some Of Which Were Too Meager To Be Called A State And Had A Few Thatched Huts. The Joint Family System Had Its Impact On The Polity As Its Result Many Times The Kingdom Was Divided Among The Issues Of A King As The Ancestral Property. Moreover, The Lack Of Unity Among The Descendants Of The Same Family Also Led To The Disintegration Of The Big Kingdom Like Those Of Senas And Mallas. Thus, When Nepal Was Shattered Into Pieces, There Emerged A Small And Youngest Principality Which Shouldered The Burden Of Uniting The Divided Political Units Into One Bigger State. That Burden Was Borne By Gorkha.Gorkha, Although The Youngest Among The States In The Western Nepal, Was Made Strong, Well Determined And Daring By Its History. The Centuries Old Struggle For Its Existence Against Lamjung Had Made The Nation Militant, Cemented The Relation Between The Ruler And Ruled, And Determined To Do Something. In This Context Rulers Like Rama Shah, Prithvipati Shah And Others Had Contributed A Lot In The Growth Of The State. Rama Shah Became Shah In The Of Expansion Of Gorkha Empire. The Poverty Stricken And Outcastes Were Looked Down Upon By Next Door Neighbours And Humiliated Gorkha Sought A New Say For Its Growth And Development. Gorkha Made The Glorious History Under The Competent Ruler Like Prithvinarayan Shah.
