Críticas:

This book deals, importantly and expertly, with what most other anthropological studies leave out: the individual person. The contributors take large strides towards filling this yawning anthropological gap, including in their analyses a wide spectrum ofethnographic types, from Tarai-dwellers to those living in the highest mountainssss -- James F. Fisher, Carleton College Collectively, these essays remind us of the central importance of individual persons whenever we attempt to understand culture and the ways that it shapes, and is shaped by, personal identities. By delivering this reminder so sharply and concretely, the book is clearly a success and deserves to be read. -- Gregory G. Maskarinec, University of Hawaii * Journal of Anthropological Research * This represents the most wide-ranging sample of Indian military opinion yet undertaken. Kundu's study is an important addition to the understanding of the Indian military provided by earlier studies. It demonstrates the value of blending documentary with oral sources and of adopting an inter-disciplinary approach to South Asian Studies. -- Ian Talbot * Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies * This is extremely readable volume; each article contains personal reflection, anecdote, and ethnographic detail. -- Naomi H. Bishop, California State University, Northridge * Religious Studies Review, Vol 26, No. 2 * The book is an important one, not only because of its subject matter, but also because of the way such examinations proceed; few anthropologists have looked at individual lives in Himalayan societies in such ethnografically rich, theoretically sophisticated terms. One of the volume's strengths is the ethnographic diversity and comprehensiveness staked out by the contributors. Another is the matrix of concepts, questions, insights, assessments and reassessments that results from a careful reading of the chapters. * Transcultural Psychiatry * This book deals, importantly and expertly, with what most other anthropological studies leave out: the individual person. The contributors take large strides towards filling this yawning anthropological gap, including in their analyses a wide spectrum of ethnographic types, from Tarai-dwellers to those living in the highest mountains -- James F. Fisher, Carleton College [This] volume consists of .... ethnographic studies [which] explore the dialectical relationship between individuals and their sociocultural and historical environment....all the contributions are important components of a well-disciplined, unitary exercise. -- Charles Ramble, University of Oxford * Journal of Asian Studies * This represents the most wide-ranging sample of Indian military opinion yet undertaken. Kundu's study is an important addition to the understanding of the Indian military provided by earlier studies. It demonstrates the value of blending documentary with oral sources and of adopting an inter-disciplinary approach to South Asian Studies. -- Ian Talbot * Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies * This is an attractive and readable volume which all specialists on Nepal should consult. * Journal Of The Royal Anthropological Institute * This is a strong contribution to the ethnography of Nepal, South Asia, and an important exploration of contemporary theories of the processes of self-formation and in and against daily practices and dominant discourses. * Cambridge Anthropology *

Reseña del editor:

Recently anthropology has turned to accounts of persons-in-history/history-in-persons, focusing on how individuals and groups as agents both fashion and are fashioned by social, political, and cultural discourses and practices. In this approach, power, agency, and history are made explicit as individuals and groups work to constitute themselves in relation to others and within and against sociopolitical and historical contexts. Contributors to this volume extend this emphasis, drawing upon their ethnographic research in Nepal to examine closely how selves, identities, and experience are produced in dialogical relationships through time in a multi-ethic nation-state and within a discourse of nationalism. The diversity of peoples, recent political transformations, and nation-building efforts make Nepal an especially rich locale to examine people's struggles to define and position themselves. But the authors move beyond geographical boundaries to more theoretical terrain to problematicize the ways in which people recreate or contest certain identities and positions. Various authors explore how people-positioned by gender, ethnicity, and locale-use cultural genres to produce aspects of identities and experiences; they examine how subjectivities, agencies and cultural worlds co-develop and are shaped through engagement with cultural forms; and they portray the appropriation of multiple voices for self and group formation. As such, this collection offers a richly textured and complex accounting of the mutual constitution of selves and society.
