Invitation to Love: Literacy, Love Letters & Social
Change in Nepal Laura M Ahearn Adarsh Books, 2004
Using a rich ethnographic style, the author discusses the implications of an emerging love letter correspondence and traces out the broader ramifications for literacy, gender, personhood and social change in Nepali society. Her close examination of marriage practices reveals the microprocesses of social transformations as this shift occurs-especially how villagers' own conceptions of their abilities and responsibilities are being affected by Western-influenced understandings and practices.
