Caravans and Trade in Afghanistan: The Changing Life of the Nomadic Hazarbuz


For centuries the Hazarbuz nomads have travelled the routes between Eastern Afghanistan and Turkestan, an area linked to the Silk Route, the age-old connection between the Orient and the Occident. This century however, their originally pastoral way of life has seen a number of upheavals as the society adapts to modern-day life in Afghanistan. This book explores the history of the Hazarbuz community, and traces the socio-economic and political changes which have shaped it in the 20th century.
