Abstract
Dalits of Nepal: Towards Dignity, Citizenship and Justice is an interdisciplinary book that provides readers with a range of social science perspectives, from local in-depth ethnographic detail and interpretation to summaries of national educational and other trends in citizen rights and social justice. The authors employ a mix of research methods to more fully describe the situation of Nepal’s Dalits while arguing that Nepal is wasting its human resources by keeping Dalits poor and uneducated, and that the political will to change is weak. But as Dalits wait for the political transformation promised, they forge new organizations and relationships from the freer society around them.
