What a great read. I finally found a book that explains the role the RAJ played on the frontier.

Its a book that should be required reading for all before going forth and finding thy self in a bloody quagmire .

Dealing with the hundred of different tribes as a foreigner, not speak the language or the culture

A thoroughly researched and informed historical review of the Pashtun border tribes of what is now Pakistan. It gives a very interesting account of the history of the various border tribes through their pleasant or--mostly--unpleasant interactions with the British colonial forces. A must-read for anyone wanting to understand the history, nature, and character of the border tribes.
