The Newars: An Ethno-sociological Study of a Himalayan Community

Gopal Singh Nepali (Author)

The Newars of Nepal are a people with a high degree of material culture and a distinctive social organisation. Though stray references on them are available from the pioneering accounts of Levi, Hodgson, Oldfield, K.P. Chattopathyaya and others, threr has been no systematic ethon sociological study on the subject. Dr. Nepal's monograph, which earned him the Ph.D. degree of the the Bpmbay University, Makes an attempt to fill in this gap.

Written in the best traditions of sociological studies, the author, who has had the benefit of being trained under Dr. G.S Ghurye, the doyen of Indian sociology, uses the functional approach and the descriptive method to advantage, as in particularly evident in his religion and kinship.

The monograph derives additional dimensions of interest on two poinits: While on the one hand it seeks to study the Newars and their interaction with various other ethnic groups of the politically significant cis-Himalayas region, the work, on the other hand, stimulates scholarly of certain culture-traits between the Neaars and the distantly-places Nayars of Malabar.
