“This book explores the development strategies and issues of Nepal in an analytical and evidence-based approach. It has assessed policy envisioning from the pre-democratic era to recent times and has examined the development policy framework along with the political transformation. It has meticulously reviewed the post-nineties political parties' manifestos, policies, budgets, and development plans.
Historical evidence explained in the book is encouraging and makes it easy to understand whatever is happening today or put the issues in the right perspective. The book is an important insight to the state which has been reiterating development agenda for the last many decades."
