A note about spelling

In 1842, Mountstuart Elphinstone wrote that “it is always difficult to represent Asiatic words in our own characters, and this is increased in the present instance by want of a uniform system” (p. x). For example, he spelled place names this way: Caubul, Hindoo Coosh and Afghaunistaun. Today there is increasingly common spelling practice, which this book follows, except in direct quotes, where the original has been used.
