India–China Boundary Problem 1846–1947

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the failed efforts to define the boundary with China despite two successive boundary commissions. A boundary consciousness never receded from the minds of the authorities in London, Calcutta, and Simla. There was also the fear of the Russian expansion. This consciousness was fed by the surveys, launched with official approval, and by the need to print official maps of the region, now that it was under British suzerainty. Relations with China, moreover, were not to be put at risk either by ignorance of the border zones or the foolhardiness of Kashmir's Maharaja. Security problems also pressed themselves for decision.
