Ladakh, one of the oldest politics in the Western Himalayas, alongwith Baltistan and West Tibet, became the target of Dogra-Sikh invasions in the second quarter of the nineteenth century. These invasions led be General Zorawar Singh, not only determined the ruin of the Ladakh and Balti kingdoms, but also extended the boundaries of the Sikh State, under Maharaja Ranjit Singh, to its true geographical limits in the north and north-east. What were the attitudes of the British Indian Government and Nepal towards these invasions? And how did the Tibetans and the Chi'ng Emperor react to the extension of the limits of the Sikh State to the other side of the Himalayas and ultimately expelled the invaders from Western Tibet? The present book, which is based on the primary sources, in addition to answering these questions deals with the relations of Ladakh with its neighbouring countries, and throws interesting light on the Russian intrigues in Ladakh and Kashmir in the first half of the nineteenth century. Printed Pages: 256.
