Pathans of the Latter Day

James W. Spain

The millions of Pathan tribesmen living around the Khyber Pass on Pakistan's North-West Frontier are a major factor in Central Asia. Made famous by Rudyard Kipling's stories and poems, some of the Pathans have very successfully adapted to modern ways; others have equally successfully held on to their traditional ways. Pathans of the Latter Day, a sequel to the author's classic work on the Pathans of forty years ago, examines them as they are today.
