Shanker Thapa (Author)
Synopsis The present volume mainly deals with the agrarian relations in Nepal. Agriculture as such remained dominant in the Nepalese politics. Both the landlords as well as peasant cultivators played political roles of immense significance. For understanding of such roles, the understanding of agrarian relations is overwhelmingly necessary. This book will be very useful for all those interested persons. This book is the first of its kind written on the theme by a native historian. The relationship between different parties in agriculture is the main feature of this book. In fact, all possible relations between the state as a ultimate proprietor and land owner, landlord and peasant, land holding intermediarly and peasant cultivators and lease holding peasants and the actual cultivators. The dominance of the aristocracy and bare subsistence conditions of the toiling peasantry is described in a lucid style. The peasant cultivators produced capital and a portion of that produce was regularly paid as rent, taxes and levies. But this group of poor people was never considered to be important for the government. This situation is also exactly described in the book. Beside all these situations. The agrarian relation in Nepal in the given period is analyzed conceptually. The author has conceptualized the relations between various agrarian communities based on his findings.
