Nazif M Shahrani Following a discussion of a number of travel books on Baluchistan written between the 1860s and 1890s, this article will detail the four-month journey of Firuz Mirza Farman Farma (1817–86), the Qajar provincial governor of Kirman and Baluchistan, on the frontier in 1880.

The original book describes the cultural and ecological adaptation of the nomadic Kirghiz . The differing responses of the Kirghiz and Wakhi to the Marxist coup are discussed in the new Epilogue.

The new Preface challenges the assumption that the root cause of terrorism is religious.

An extended new Preface and a new Epilogue written after the fall of the Taliban in 2001, place The Kirghiz and Wakhi of Afghanistan, originally published in 1979, in the context of a vastly changed world. The original book describes the cultural and ecological adaptation of the nomadic Kirghiz and their agriculturalist neighbors, the Wakhi, to high altitudes and a frigid climate in the Wakhan Corridor, a panhandle of Afghanistan that borders Pakistan, the former Soviet Union, and the People’s Republic of China.The new Preface challenges the assumption that the root cause of terrorism is religious. Shahrani asserts that the problem of terrorism is fundamentally political and is historically linked to the inappropriate model of the centralized nation-state introduced to Afghanistan by colonial regimes.The differing responses of the Kirghiz and Wakhi to the Marxist coup are discussed in the new Epilogue. Shahrani has closely followed the flight of the Kirghiz to Pakistan in 1978 and their eventual resettlement among resentful Kurdish villagers in eastern Turkey in 1982. The ethnographic documentation and analysis of the transformation of Kirghiz society, politics, economics, and demography since their exodus from the Pamirs offers valuable lessons to our understanding of the dynamics and true resilience of small pastoral nomadic communities.

Nazif Shahrani’s Kirghiz and Wakhi of Afghanistan demonstrates the effect that restricted movement has for the economy and social structure of the Kirghiz living in the high Pamirs, which Shahrani terms “pastoral nomadic involution,” when a society experiences structural change without change in the accompanying culture (224). When the Kirghiz were forced into their summer pastures in the Wakhan corridor, the distribution of livestock between families was relatively even: most families owned between seventy and eighty animals, with no family owning more than fifteen hundred animals. The political structure of Kirghiz society was also relatively diffuse, with a number of influential khans representing smaller groups of kinsmen (171). Restricted movement has not only lead to the centralization of wealth and political power among rich Kirghiz households, but to the development of the kind of patron-client relationships characteristic of the nomadic economy in other parts of Inner Asia.

Had to purchase this for my class and never ever regretted. It's an amazing study that is very helpful for understanding tangled relationships between Central Asian cultures. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
