About this item

This color-illustrated history for scholars and history buffs details the exploration and documentation of the geography, routes, peoples, and landscapes of the Wakhan Quadrangle, a mountainous region of Central Asia desired by Britain, Russia, Afghanistan, and China, at the end of the 19th century. Looking at the role of indigenous people (‘native explorers’) trained and employed by the competing empires, the book focuses on the narrative of native explorer Munshi Abdul Rahim and seeks to retrace his steps across the region. The book also looks in depth at the report by John Biddulph, a British Political Agent in Gilgit; the book includes his entire report. The book contains color and b&w historical and contemporary photos, illustrations, and maps on every page. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
