In the Name of Development - A Reflection on Nepal
If the measure of a book's success is an ability to involve the reader and to arouse emotional reactions, then In the name of development: a reflection on Nepal is successful. I found portions of it intriguing, others comfortable as many of Nanda's observations mirror mine of Nepal, and fascinating in that he provides insights into Nepal and Nepali life that I missed during my seven years there. For those who have known, loved and cared about Nepal - or for those who want more than a tourist's view - I consider this book very stimulating reading.
