Title: Land dispute and death enmity in a Kohistani mountain village (Pakistan)
Authors: Knudsen, Are
Keywords: Land disputes
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: Chr. Michelsen Institute
Series/Report no.: CMI Working paper
WP 1998: 9
Abstract: This paper reconstructs the events that unleashed death enmity between two closely related men. Recounting this complex story from the angle of the contestants challenges simplistic cultural and material explanations of organized vengeance. Frequent disputes over land e d property, especially fields and forest, engender enmity and rivalry but the intensity of these disputes cannot be understood without uncovering their link to Kohistani notions of honour and revenge.
