Apologies to Harpviken
I am embarrassed that in my list of recent works on the Hazaras I forgot to mention the work of Kristian Berg Harpviken, ["Political Mobilization among the Hazara of Afghanistan: 1978-1992," (Oslo:Institutt for Sosiologi, Universistetet i Oslo (M.A. Thesis, 1986)]. Harpviken's thesis has to be one of the most important reports on the Hazara experience during the period 1978 - 1986. I have corrected the earlier post with a proper citation to his work. My own article "New Trends among the Hazaras" was indebted to his fundamental contribution. And there is much more there than I referred to in my article.
