Landscape change in the mountains, including changes in land use, forests and agriculture, architecture, and dwelling areas, continues to be the subject of debate, but there are many uncertainties about past conditions, rates, and directions of change. In this volume, Dr. Harka Gurung has brought together an extraordinary collection of repeat photographs and field observations focused on a hill area in Lamjung, Nepal, and used them to illustrate and discuss the landscape dynamics of the area. Numerous maps and diagrams are included as support material. The study is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the ongoing changes in the Himalayan mountains and will be of interest to development workers, students, historians, civil servants, and government, and all those interested in processes of landscape change.
