Summary
This groundbreaking book is the first sustained anthropological inquiry into the idea of remote areas. The author examines the surprisingly diverse ways that the people of Hunza, a remote independent state in Pakistan, have been viewed by outsiders over the past century. The author also explores how the Hunza people perceived British colonialists, Pakistani state officials, modern-day Westerners, and others, and how the local people used their remote status strategically, ensuring their own interests were served as they engaged with the outside world
