Irrigation and State Formation in Hunza explores the evolution of political complexity and centralization in Hunza, a remote high-mountain kingdom in the western Karakoram mountains. The author follows the argument that the rise of the Hunza state is directly linked to the construction of Hunza's large-scale irrigation works during the late 18th and early-19th centuries.
