Indian Conquest of The Himalayan Territories

Description The Himalayan region of Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh, Tibet and Baltistan had faced and seen many invasions by Indian rulers since fourteenth century, but it was annexed for the first time by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in the early 19th century and allocated to Dogra kings for governance. It is this rule of the Dogra kings primarily which this book deals with though it traces the whole history of this region, but its main focus is on Dogra king Gulab Singh and his successors. The book highlights the indomitable, courage, bravery and artistic achievements of Dogra rulers. Since the account is based on original records, it is a systematic study of this region and its major characteristics. The author's approach is focused and illustrative and carries the reader with its argument.[edit]
