Bhutan: From Theocracy to Democracy

Madhu Rajput (Editor)

Bhutan, a country in the North East of Indian subcontinent has always been a "Mysterious" mountain kingdom. India and Bhutan have always been good neighbours and friendly states. An unfamiliar mist has always enveloped the events happening inside this mountain kingdom. 2008 has been an important year for Bhutan, as it heralds a new era for its people.

To unveil the mystery, that is Bhutan, this work is an effort to gaze into the political, social and economic development of Bhutan, particularly during the time of His Majesty King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the fourth King, who capitalized on the firm foundation of Bhutan laid by the third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck and has led his people into a new age.

The year 2008 will always have a special place in Bhutan's history, for it earmarks the inevitable transition of Bhutanese society into a modern one. The impact of democracy on Bhutan will take some time to be visible, but it has certainly very promising prospects for the future of Bhutan and its place in the world.

This book focuses on the comprehensive coverage of the ideas on Bhutan as expressed by various scholars and will help comprehend the rapidly unfolding scenario with a fresh perspective.
