An admirable exegesis of the Pamir region's strategic importance to both Britain's Indian Empire and Russia, On the Indian Frontier is an account of a trek through the Pamirs in 1894, by a future Viceroy of India. It describes the social and political structure of these mountain fiefdoms in rich and dazzling detail.
