"Although the Baloch maintained a high degree of autonomy until the post-colonial era, they have in recent decades faced increasing encapsulation in the states among which they are divided - Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. They now find themselves facing situations similar to those confronting other tribal peoples in the Middle East and elsewhere. Because of their division among states and the marginal position they occupy within those states, ethnicity and nationalism often assume great significance." "The articles in this volume bring together the work of many leading European, American, and Pakistani scholars working on Balochistan, and makes up for the serious shortage of scholarly work on the Baloch. They deal with various aspects of Baloch social life in which ethnicity is salient, and examine how Baloch identity is being transformed by the presence of such factors as markets, roads and institutions of the state." - Dustjacket blurb.
