Book Description

Study of the second largest but least well-known ethnic group in Afghanistan that also confronts the taboo subject of Afghan national identity. Largely Farsi-speaking Shi'ias, the Hazaras traditionally inhabited central Afghanistan, but because of the war are now widely scattered.

Reviews

'A polemically motivated yet carefully researched synthesis of hitherto scattered information on the Hazaras.' - Peter Parkes, IRAI
