Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195790162, Hardcover)In 1936, a revolt broke put in Waziristan, a mountainous region inhabited by warlike tribes, an area that is today part of Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province. A Muslim holy man, the Faqir of Ipi, led the Wazirs against the occupying British-Indian regime for many years, and the revolt remains one of the greatest twentieth-century South Asian insurgencies. This book is the first full-length study of the campaign, providing valuable insight on a region that remains the focus of political tensions.
