Written by Mark Liechty, Associate Professor of Anthropology and History at the University of Illinois at Chigago, Suitably modern sketches the historical contours of the emergence of the middle-class in Kathmandu, probes middle-class consciousness, and     describes how a substantial segment of the urban population fashions and refashions itself as a class situated between the elite     and the laboring masses through consumerism.
