Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis examines one aspect of social change in Nepal. Contact with the outside world since 1951 has provided a non-traditional means of achieving access to highly valued occupations, resulting in the formation of an emerging elite. High caste status is no longer absolutely necessary to gain access to education, although it is still a factor. Education, and with it prestigious occupations, power, and wealth, is thus more accessible to lower and mixed caste people than before 1951. Data presented in the life history show the informant to be a mixed caste, educated, professional woman who has a prestigious occupation and earns a relatively high salary. This life history amply demonstrates the validity of the thesis advanced.
