Item description for The Last Wali of Swat (Asian Portraits) by Fredrik Barth...

History has moved very swiftly in some parts of Asia, and the personal recollections of Miangul Jahanzeb, the Wali of Swat, span a breath-taking series of transformations of which he himself was partly architect, partly prominent participant or privileged spectator. When he was born in 1908 the Swat valley formed a complex but stateless society of several hundred thousand members, linked to the archaic cosmopolitanism of Inner Asia but hardly touched by centuries of external influence. Indeed, the Swat valley had never even beeen seen by an Englishman until 13 years before the Wali's birth. During his childhood, his father emerged as the creator and ruler of a new state in this tribal territory. For twenty years, from 1949 to 1969, Wali Sahib himself ruled this state until it was peacefully merged with Pakistan
