First published in 1932, this book presents a historical study of the problems associated with controlling the 'North-West Frontier' region of British India. The text focuses in the main on the period 1890 to 1908, although a survey of policy since 1849 is also provided. It was based almost entirely on analysis of numerous official documents and original sources, which are quoted throughout. Appendices and a select bibliography are included at the end. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in perspectives on British India and historiography.
