This book is a study of how and why Nepal after a 10-year long armed insurgency, regicide, and fundamental political change sought to find a way to achieve peace and security. The chosen pathway to peace and reconciliation in Nepal after the decade of war and destruction is examined. It has faced a delay, frustration, and neglect after its protracted implementation. Politics has determined whatever peace process will be achieved in Nepal.
