|Title:||The Sino-Indian border in Ladakh|
|Publisher:||Canberra, Australian National University Press|
This book contains detailed studies of two aspects of the history of the Sino-Indian border. The first shows how some historical maps, though not necessarily reliable, throw light on problems arising from defects in the original British survey of Kashmir and its dependency Ladakh. The second deals with the evolution of the extreme western end of the border between British India and Manchu China, a stretch which was of vital concern to Pakistan and the People's Republic of China in the boundary discussions that culminated in the Sino-Pakistani Boundary Agreement of 1963. Twenty-one beautifully executed maps illustrate this work on remote and little-known regions that are as yet a continuing element in contemporary Asian tensions.
