Title: Land and Social Change in East Nepal: A Study of Hindu-Tribal Relations
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Lionel Caplan
One Sentence Summary: A study of relations between Limbus and Hindus in east Nepal.

Description: Creator’s Description: This book examines the relations between the Limbus, an indigenous "tribal" people, and the Hindus who have entered their region during the past two hundred years. It describes the deep divisions which have arisen between the two groups as a result of an historic confrontation over land. In the widest sense it is concerned with the reaction of one community to domination by another. To preserve their ancestral lands under a traditional tenure system indigenous people stress their common identity and cultural apartness from the rest of Nepalese society. This book therefore explores the link between culture and politics in a community subordinated by a more powerful group and threatened with what it regards as economic disaster and cultural annihilation.
