Under the Shadow of the Red Flag: Travels During Nepal's Armed Conflict Author:Jagannath Adhikari
Under the Shadow of the Red Flag explores the impact of Nepalís decade-long (1996-2006) armed conflict on village life and society in remote districts of the country. The accounts presented are based on the authorís observations and impressions gained from his first-hand experiences while traveling across Nepal for various research and development consulting assignments.
The book provides new insights into how people living under the shadow of the armed conflict develop knowledge of their surroundings, learn about threats and find the means to survive. It also illuminates the risks involved in wartime development activities and shows how agencies, aid workers and civilians cope when caught between two armed forces. This book will be especially useful for social scientists, development practitioners and others who wish to understand the multiple social implications of the recent conflict in Nepal.
