Historical and Political Gazeteer of Afghanistan. Volume 1, Badakhshan Province and Northeastern Afghanistan.
Adamec, Ludwig W., Ed.
Combining the most important geographical data with historical, political, and cultural information, this work, one of six volumes designed as a tool of research and a general reference source, updates and includes a previous publication compiled in 1914 with corrections and additions of maps and considerable new material to take into account developments up to 1970. Entries which refer specifically to the situation in 1970 are identified by asterisks. About one thousand entries in alphabetical order, from Ab, Ab Barik to Zulifikar and Zur with longitudes and latitudes to facilitate identification in the 52-page map section, give a detailed summary of the people and territory of northeastern Afghanistan. An appendix lists English translations for the most common geographical terms. (Author)
