The long view on Nepal’s history with India and China, as well as the story of China as a global power in the twenty-first century.

about The Book


‘[R]equired reading for everyone in New Delhi dealing with Nepal and for anyone interested in understanding China’s growing footprint in the subcontinent.’ – Srinath Raghavan, author of The Most Dangerous Place: A History of the United States in South Asia

‘Amish Mulmi examines the rich history of Nepal’s global engagement through its northern border, marked as it is by trade, cultural exchange, political manoeuvring, and occasional conflict, even war… This book introduces readers to Nepal anew.’ – Manjushree Thapa, author of Forget Kathmandu

All Roads Lead North is the long view on Nepal’s foreign relations, as well as the story of China as a global power in the twenty-first century. Telling never-before-told stories about Tibetan guerrilla fighters, failed coup leaders and trans-Himalayan traders, this book examines the histories that tie remote Himalayan communities to each other. Part historical study, part journalistic account and all of it rigorously researched, Nepal analyst Amish Raj Mulmi writes a new, complex and compelling account of a small country caught between two neighbourhood giants.
