About this item

The book provides a comprehensive overview of a neglected mountain region in the interface between South and Central Asia by emphasizing on the Pamir region. From colonial times to now there has been a debate on grasping and locating the area. Here field-work based contributions are collected to provide a variety of perspectives on the Pamirs highlighting transformation and transition in Post-Soviet societies as well as in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The similar ecological environment across borders features the common ground while analysing development processes in a set of case studies that aim at highlighting certain aspects of regional development.
