Pashtun Tales: From the Pakistan-Afghan Frontier

Aisha Ahmad and Roger Boase (eds.)

Paperback

9780863566370

 

These stories were collected in the tribal areas of the Pakistan-Afghan border, a region once described as ‘the last free place on earth’, where the caravan routes from Persia, India and China historically converged.

 

With a blend of wit, fantasy, comedy and romance, these tales reflect the Pashtun code of honour and way of life, now seriously threatened by social changes and political upheaval.
