Up-to-date and authentic, empirical and original, Student, Politics & Democracy in Nepal looks at the turbulent chapters of Nepalese history from a fresh angle. Offering a fine fusion of journalism and contemporary history, Meena Ojha examines the role of student movements in shaping the fate and future of contemporary Nepal, and asks several formidable questions —
