Encyclopaedia of Sikkim and Bhutan (In 3 Volumes)

Usha Sharma (Editor) S K Sharma (Editor)
Synopsis This encyclopaedia focuses on two Himalayan Kingdoms Sikkim (now a Indian state) and Bhutan and delves deeply into the multi-facet aspects like political treaties, covenant or agreements signed between the two countries and British India, their history, geography and travels and social and cultural heritage. The volume has traversed into the unsurpassable domains and terrains through the accounts of early travellers to these Himalayan Kingdoms. Both the kingdoms had been viewed for political and their highly strategic value from the very beginning and India has always assured them full security. In the words of Jawaharlal Nehru that any incursion into Bhutan or Sikkim will be considered incursion into India. The volumes carry the faithful accounts by the early travellers who have very minutely narrated the minutest details about the region, people, culture, customs, fauna and flora, trade and trade routes, economy, and social and cultural heritage. The encyclopaedic treatment of the subject in convincing, interesting, simple and comprehensive language enhances the value of this encyclopaedia and enable the readers to be fully engrossed and lost in these pages. It also acquaints all scholars to be fully aware of all the political treaties made so far for the defence of Sikkim and Bhutan and it also enriches their cultural and social knowledge with gradual study of these authentic, and authoritative papers presented here.
