Promotional Information

"The Lhotsampa People of Bhutan highlights the plight of a highly oppressed and excluded people group whose voices have been silenced and overlooked. Venkat Pulla and colleagues skillfully examine the nuanced issues of culture, intergenerational conflicts in resettlement, human rights abuses, discrimination and exclusion, the refugee experience, and reintegration after resettlement." Vishanthie Sewpaul, Senior Professor of Social Work, University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa 'Despite its claims about 'gross national happiness,' Bhutan is one of the world's largest per capita producers of refugees. This book clearly challenges this happiness myth by exposing the gross hypocrisy at the heart of Bhutan's treatment of its people.' Paul Power, CEO, Refugee Council of Australia 'With the emasculation of human rights in the 'Land of the Dragon,' Bhutan is anything but a Shangri-La. I recommend this book for everyone who wishes to know about how the Drukpa treated the Lhotsampa people.' Fernand de Varennes, Faculte de droit, Universite de Moncton, Canada

"The editor and authors deserve appreciation for their passion in researching a community on which there is an absolute lack of previous literature. ... this book is successful in communicating the painstaking details of the now global Lhotsampa community. An essential read, it deserves to be at the top of the table of human rights policy makers, sociologists, anthropologists, development studies experts and of course, those pursuing research on Gross National Happiness." (Rituparna Bhattacharyya, South Asia Research, Vol. 37 (1), February, 2017)
