Resources on the Speleology of Afghanistan, BHB Vol. 14   

Price:  $22.00 

166 pages, many cave surveys, maps and B&W photos; Berlin 2004. Herbert Daniel Gebauer. The up-to date standard reference on karst and caves of Afghanistan. All the known 278 Afghan caves and numerous man-made rock-chaubers are presented in detail on the basis of nearly 700 bibliographical references. Extensive annotations with about 770 footnotes.With a very extensive list of references, an alphabetical name register, and with a cave list according to provinces.In English language. After 25 years of military invasions and civil war, cavers may get inspired by learning that tourists "particularly backpacking Japanese coming to see the Buddhas, are drifting into Bamiyan (COHEN 2004: 165)". To recollect some aspects of the speleological knowledge on Afghanistan that was already gained, a nuuber of 278 natural caves and rock shelters, man-made rock chaubers and other "cavish" items were compiled from 693 bibliographical references and listed in alphabetical order. The initial attempt to sort entries by provinces and district was given up. In the past, the administrative divisions of Afghanistan have changed too often to invest into the "32 Province 329 District administrative model" suggested by the United Nations.
