Overview

Lyrical travel writing and hard-hitting reportage from the remote border region where Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan all meet - one of the last truly unexplored frontiers for Western journalism.

Powerful accompanying photographs showcase this rugged, dangerous but beautiful landscape and the struggles of a poorly understood people - the Baloch - desperate to maintain their own national identity.

A fascinating account of British reporter Willem Marx's travels in Balochistan; a forbidding, forbidden and largely forgotten province of Pakistan that is currently immersed in civil conflict. The French photojournalist Marc Wattrelot has captured some spectacular images during their time spent in this little-known corner of the world.

"Balochistan at a Crossroads" provides remarkable insight into this formidable region, rarely seen by the outside world.This book presents many aspects of Balochistan - its past and present, its people and places. It is an account that offers an entirely new perspective on a harsh and unforgiving landscape and the people who call it home.

Editorial Reviews

Telegraph
The photographs of Marc Wattrelot (who studied journalism in Paris and is now a documentary filmmaker in Beirut) and the reportage of Willem Marx (Classics at Oxford and journalism at NYU) interleave with a sort of restrained and humble eloquence in this sparely designed book to conjure up a nuanced yet dramatic account of this difficult region of a difficult country.
