After a brief account of the modern exploration and history of this mountain kingdom, Mr. Karan discusses Bhutan's economy, population, settlement and cultural patterns, as well as its transportation, trade, and development plans. He also considers Bhutan's prospects and problems as the country moves from an old, ingrown, traditional society toward a modern nation-state which will increasingly reflect the whole complex of ideas, values, and technology borrowed from the outside. The book is richly illustrated with twenty-one photographs in color and over seventy in black and white. It contains over twenty maps including a large relief map of Bhutan in four colors. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Bhutan, Maps, Pradyumna P. Karan, Physical Geography, Himalayas, India, Sikkim, Tongsa Valley).
