The Pashtuns are perhaps the largest ethnic group in the world without a country of their own. They inhabit a continuous stretch of land from the Hindu Kush to the Indus, across Pakistan and Afghanistan. Pakistan used the Pashtun-dominated areas in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) as a launching pad against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980s and later during the US-led War on Terror.
The Pashtuns: A Contested History by Tilak Devasher
The non-fiction book “The Pashtuns: A Contested History” by Tilak Devasher examines the complicated past and identity of the Pashtun people. Devasher examines the beginnings and evolution of Pashtun society, as well as the difficulties and conflicts that have impacted their past, using historical and anthropological sources. The controversy surrounding Pashtun identity, particularly their ties to Islam, tribalism, and nationalism, is also covered in the book. For those who want to learn more about Pashtun culture and history, the book is a great resource.
