When ten Pakistani men walk into Kathleen JamieOCOs small Scottish town on a peace march, in November 2001, she is thrown back to her own travels in Northern Pakistan and a book she wrote a decade earlier.
Among Muslims is the account of JamieOCOs time travelling alone and living among the Shia and Ismaili Muslims in the Northern Areas OCo the mountainous regions wedged between Afghanistan, India and China and one of the most volatile borderlands in the world.
A bold, sympathetic and superbly written book, Among Muslims delves into JamieOCOs own Scottish upbringing to find links with the purdah-observing lifestyle of her Shia Muslim hosts. It is a privileged account from an acclaimed poet, who during her travels was often literally the only woman on the bus.
Among Muslims was originally published as The Golden Peak. For this edition, Kathleen Jamie returned to Pakistan to write an Afterword and Preface.
