This book contains a brief account of the revolt in Balochistān, an episode merely of the great political drama enacted west of the Indus, but deserving attention as the precursor of the catastrophe subsequently developed at Kābal.
The volume concludes with a memoir on Eastern Balochistān, covering geography, tribes, government and history, antiquities and dialects, military force, revenue, trade, agriculture, manners, customs and natural history and mineralogy.
