This book arises from a research project financed by the British Ministry of Overseas Development; the authors (an economist, a geographer, and a sociological) are members of the School of Development Studies at the University of East Angila. The core of the book is a socio-economic study of the west-central region of Nepal, with special reference to the effects of road construction, but the authors generalize from this to give a picture of the situation in Nepal as a whole and draw conclusions about the relations of dependency that may hold between different countries and different elements within a single country.
About the Authors
The authors are senior members of the School of Development Studies and the Overseas Development Group (ODG) at the University of East Angila in Norwich, England, trained as human geographer (Blaikie), economist (Cameron), and sociologist/social anthropologist (Seddon) respectively. They have worked, together and separately, to develop an integrated approach to the political economy and (in the case of Blaikie particularly) the political ecology of Nepal, for about 25 years.
