The involvement of Nepali doctors in the revolutionary changes of 1990 is examined in this book. These doctors, who were trained in the West, have always been politically motivated in their pursuit of creating a medical practice that speaks to local health beliefs and is relevant to Nepali situations. The author highlights how thin the boundary is between scientific medical truth claims and politics. Her research covers Nepal's contemporary political history as well as the function of medicine in a poor, predominately rural Hindu country.
