Title: Kirkpatrick's An Account of the Kingdom of Nepal
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Prayag Raj Sharma
One Sentence Summary: A review article of Kirkpatrick's An Account of the Kingdom of Nepal.

Description: This is a review article mainly based on Kirkpatrick's An Account of the Kingdom of Nepal: The Substance of Observations Made during a Mission to that Country in the Year 1793. Colonel Kirkpatrick's mission to Nepal was undertaken in early 1793 and his itinerary lasted less than seven weeks, from February 13 until April 3. Kirkpatrick wrote in his book that two Himalayan states, Tibet and Nepal, were regarded as ideal for conducting trade with Britain. The article includes the saying of Prithvinarayan Shah in Divya Upadesa: "This kingdom is like a yam, sandwiched between two stones." The article reveals the Nepalese diplomacy at that time of maintaining good relations with neighboring countries and of opposing the English. (Rajeev Ranjan Singh 2006-08-12)
