By Jens Enevoldsen, with a preface by Dr. Leonard Bartlotti.

A selection of Pashto proverbs and tappas (folk songs) in Pashto script with English translation and cultural illustrations. “Through proverbs and tappas; Pashtuns paint miniature portraits of themselves.” This book provides a mini portrait gallery of Pashtun culture, including religion, ethics and human nature. It is a window into “a world in which faith and pakhto, honour and shame, power and weakness, friendship and rivalry are lived out in the dangerous, ambiguous social world of common Pashtuns.”
