"...such fine ethnographic material has much to contribute to many comparative questions." - Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
Popular representations of Pakistan's North West Frontier have long featured simplistic images of fanatical religion. The radical Taliban regime in neighbouring Afghanistan enhanced the region's reputation as a place of anti-Western militancy. Magnus Marsden shows that the life of a good Muslim in Chitral is above all a mindful life. Challenging much that has been assumed on the Muslim world, this study makes a powerful contribution to the understanding of religion and politics in the Muslim societies of southern Asia and beyond.
