We are pleased to bring to you Volume 40, Issue 2. In this issue we include eight omnibus pieces, two beautiful photo essays, and eight book reviews, in addition to our regular conference report, president’s letter, and editorial. We also pay tribute to three remarkable scholars, Narpat Singh Jodha (1937–2020), Pradyumna Prasad Karan (1930–2018) and Theodore Riccardi, Jr. (1937–2020), who were larger-than-life figures in Himalayan studies, and who together leave us a remarkable body of scholarship that will continue to influence the field. Do also check us out on social media. Thank you for reading Himalaya.
