    Peshawar, Pakistan: Ferozsons Ltd, (1963) dj. Hardcover - In 1849, the Yousafzai established their own Yusafzai State of Swat under the leadership of Akhund Abdul Ghaffur, but this book focuses on the transformation of the state under Miangul Golshahzada Abdul-Wadud, founder of the dynasty of Swat. Swat was uncommon in that its government was not imposed on the area by an imperial power or individual, but was established by the Jirga in 1915, who appointed Abul-Wadud as leader in 1917. The British recognised this ruler and the state as a princely state in India in 1926. Following the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the ruler acceded the state to Pakistan, although it retained considerable autonomy for many years. Abdul Wadud abdicated in 1949, and his son succeeded him as ruler, continuing his developmental works, but also becoming more autocratic. Although not mentioned in this book, it was written when both opposition to the leader and persecution and imprisonment of opponents were increasing, a movement which finally resulted in the dissolution of the state by the government of Pakistan in 1969. Translated from the Urdu by Ashruf Altaf Husain. Illustrated with photographs. Includes a translator's note, a long introduction and several appendices. lxix, 143, xxvii pp.
