Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Governance, Conflict, and Civic Action, No. 5.Publisher: New Delhi Sage Publications Pvt. Ltd. 2014Description: x, 471 p.ISBN: 9788132111627.Subject(s): Ethnic groups - Himalaya Mountains Region | Group identity - Himalaya Mountains Region | Nationalism - Himalaya Mountains Region | National characteristics | Globalization - Himalaya Mountains RegionDDC classification: 305.80095496 Summary: This book explores the complex relationships between belonging and globalization in the contemporary Himalayan world and beyond. Over the last decades, the interrelations at local, national, and global scales have intensified in historically unprecedented forms and intensity. At the same time, homogenizing global processes have generated parochial and vernacular reactions. This book aims at developing an appropriate analysis of these interactions and, thus, at supplementing the previous collection on the Politics of Belonging in the Himalayas. This book is the first major study on this topic and a crucial contribution to the study of the current change within the Himalayan societies and their cultures. It is based on several case studies carried out by outstanding anthropologists, geographers, linguists, political scientists working in the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas.
