The papers in this collection were initially presented (with the exception of chapter 10) at a day-long panel during the Modern South Asian studies conference in Edinburgh in September 2000. Most of the papers have been revised since that presentation, some substantially so, but these revisions were mostly done in early 2001 and-with the exception of two short passages (pp. 128-30 and 332-4)-do not cover the period since the declaration of a State of Emergency in November 2001.

There has been growing concern about "failed states" around the world, and since the massacre of the Royal family in Nepal in 2001 increasing media attention has focused on the decline of the state and the rise of the Maoist rebels in this Himalayan kingdom where so many Westerners have taken trekking vacations. Development was always going to be a problem in Nepal, but few predicted the precipitous collapse of the state in rural areas in the face of the Maoist insurgency beginning in 1996 due, to a large extent, to the failure of the state to deliver promised development and benefits; instead, it became more and more authoritarian, even oppressive. Exploring the complex relationship between a modernizing, developmentalist state and the people it professes to represent, these fascinating and readable accounts of ordinary people's lives depict the various contexts out of which the Maoist insurgency grew.
