This volume is a critical evaluation of the westernmost province of Pakistan's society, land resources, and potential. Baluchistan's geographic position, east of Iran and south of Afghanistan on the north shore of the Arabian Sea, was and is a passageway for Russians to the sea and Iranians to India. To some, a key to the world's oceans, and to others, control of South Asia, the historic geographic entity was fought over by Alexander the Great, the Arabs, and the British. Insights gained from this study will assist all who have interest in the Middle East and South Asia geopolitics and economic stability.
Akhtar Husain Siddiqi is Professor of Geography at Indiana State University, Terre Haute.
