The book is a comprehensive and systematic study of land and forest governance in Swat State (1915–1969). It is rich in factual information, has been written in a simple style, and presented methodologically. It is based heavily on primary source material—both published and unpublished—as well as on respected secondary sources and one-on-one interviews.
The book details how forests have been managed in the Swat State areas and Kalam from the 16th century to 2014. It also discusses issues of land tenure and ownership system in the region, without which forestry issues and the accompanying complexities cannot be fully understood. The political and administrative backdrop to all these issues have also been explored in detail.
