In 2008, Bhutan triumphantly took the stage as the world's youngest democracy. But despite its growing prominence--and rising scholarly interest in the country--Bhutan remains one of the least studied, and least well-known places on the planet.

Karma Phuntsho's The History of Bhutan is the first book to offer a comprehensive history of Bhutan in English. Along with a detailed social and political analysis, it offers substantive discussions of Bhutan's geography and culture; the result is the clearest, richest account of this nation and its history ever published for general readers.
