A Humanistic Approach to World History in Mongol Eurasia:
Meso-Historical Analysis on Regions, Networks, and Institutions
May 17–18, 2017, Mt. Scopus, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Asian Borderlands is a series from Amsterdam University Press that presents the latest research on borderlands in Asia as well as on the borderlands of Asia – the regions linking Asia with Africa, Europe and Oceania. Its approach is broad: it covers the entire range of the social sciences and humanities. The series explores the social, cultural, geographic, economic and historical dimensions of border-making by states, local communities and flows of goods, people and ideas.
In the 21st century, human mobility will increasingly have an Asian face. Migration from, to, and within Asia is not new, but it is undergoing profound transformations. Unskilled labour migration from the Philippines, China, India, Burma, Indonesia, and Central Asia to the West, the Gulf, Russia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand continues apace. Yet industrialization in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and India, the opening of Burma, and urbanization in China is creating massive new flows of internal migration. China is fast becoming a magnet for international migration from Asia and beyond.
The National Committee on United States-China Relations is pleased to announce the fifth round of its Public Intellectuals Program (PIP).

My latest book focusing on Pashtuns (Pathans) living on both sides of Pakistan-Afghanistan borders along with encompassing post-9/11 developments in this region has been published by Anthem Press. The NATO’s longest and ongoing war in Afghanistan has cost trillions of dollars besides claiming numerous lives. For Britain it is the fourth military engagement since the First Anglo-Afghan war of 1838-42. Historically, Pashtuns have defied several invaders since Alexander the Great and there are numerous hypotheses about their Aryan or Semitic origins.
