Abstract:

Hindman examines the intersections of life and work for expatriates in Kathmandu, Nepal, and the many changes to their experience of overseas labour in the last sixty years. New racialised and gendered labour, forms of expertise and ideas of security have altered the work of experts and their relationships to Nepalis. This book examines such diverse phenomena as global business, international politics, gendered labour practices and Nepal's own history through the lens of the world of transnational elite labour in Kathmandu.
